  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20170083369
    Abstract: Building binary packages for software products, particularly large-scale software products, is a highly computation intensive process. Thus, it is desirable to distribute the workload over a large number of computing nodes so as to have the build process complete in an optimal period of time. One environment providing compute resources that can be utilized for a highly available and dynamically scalable distributed build process is an elastic compute cloud. In such an environment, virtual machines can be instantiated and destroyed as the resource requirements of the build process dictate. This has the advantage that dedicated hardware is unneeded, and excess capacity on the hardware employed can be employed for other computation tasks when the build process is idle. Presented herein are systems, methods and computer storage media for distributing a highly available and scalable build service, suitable for use in an elastic compute environment or other distributed environment.

  • Patent number: 9137111
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for automatically validating and configuring an inventory of hardware to interact seamlessly with a cloud-computing fabric of a data center are provided. Initially, devices internal to the hardware inventory are located by sending and receiving messages via out-of-band communication channels and network communication channels, respectively. Locating the internal devices involves establishing communication from a user device to the hardware inventory and selecting at least one of the internal devices for conducting a discovery process thereon. The discovery process involves receiving a first network identifier via the out-of-band communication channel and receiving a second network identifier via the network communication channel. When the first and second network identifiers match, the interconnection of the selected device is validated. Otherwise, one or more remedial measures are initiated with respect to the selected device.

  • Publication number: 20130346260
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for automatically configuring an inventory of hardware to interact seamlessly with a datacenter are provided. Initially, customer-specific specifications are collected from a user, which are automatically supplemented with platform-specific specifications. These specifications are used to select the hardware inventory from a set of predefined hardware clusters, where each of the predefined hardware clusters represents compatible configurations of hardware assets and logical assets that have been demonstrated to function congruently. A cluster-configuration file is derived from data held within a stock-keeping unit (SKU) that describes the selected hardware inventory. The cluster-configuration file is populated with abstract symbolic representations that act as placeholders for expected values that are presently unknown. Network resources are assigned by automated conversion of the abstract symbolic representations into concrete values.
