  • Patent number: 9917736
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide systems, methods, and computer storage media for automated standalone bootstrapping of hardware inventory that includes a provisioning workflow of discovering, validating, and configuring hardware inventory. In an exemplary embodiment, an in-rack computing device, such as a chassis manager or selected blade, initializes an intra-rack communication network with a hardware inventory of the rack. The in-rack computing device initiates intra-rack communication with the hardware inventory in the rack, using the intra-rack communication network, to discover at least a set of computing units in a hardware inventory. Intra-rack communications that include traffic received from the set of computing units.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20140337502
    Abstract: A cloud manager assists in deploying and managing networks for an online service. The cloud manager system receives requests to perform operations relating to configuring, updating and performing tasks in networks that are used in providing the online service. The management of the assets may comprise deploying machines, updating machines, removing machines, performing configuration changes on servers, Virtual Machines (VMs), as well as performing other tasks relating to the management. The cloud manager is configured to receive requests through an idempotent and asynchronous application programming interface (API) that can not rely on a reliable network.

  • Publication number: 20120102198
    Abstract: A machine manager controls the deployment and management of machines for an online service. The machine manager is configured to manually/automatically deploy farms, upgrade farms, add machines, remove machines, start machines, stop machines, and the like. The machine manager keeps track of the locations of the machines, the roles of the machines within the networks, as well as other characteristics relating to the machines (e.g. health of the machines). Instead of upgrading software on the machines in a farm that are currently handling requests, one or more machines are configured in a new farm with the selected disk images and then the requests are moved from the old farm to the new farm.
