  • Patent number: 9917889
    Abstract: According to various example embodiments, a request transmitted from a client and directed to a service application is intercepted. A logical database (DB) host specified by a hint value included in the request is then identified. Moreover, a target physical DB host is identified, based on the identified logical DB host and DB host mapping information. Thereafter, the request is routed to an instance of the service application co-located with the identified target physical DB host at a particular data center.

  • Publication number: 20180004745
    Abstract: In an example embodiment, a distributed storage system includes a service tier including a service node to receive a request for a logical object comprising binary data and metadata describing the binary data, and a storage tier including a plurality of storage nodes, wherein one or more of the storage nodes is to store the metadata describing the binary data. The distributed storage system also includes a coordination tier to store mapping information identifying the one or more of the storage nodes storing the metadata. The service node is also to receive the mapping information from the coordination tier, to access the metadata describing the binary data from one of the one or more of the storage nodes based on the mapping information, and to return the metadata describing the binary data in a response to the request.

  • Patent number: 9792646
    Abstract: A method and a system to provide real-time bidding in online auction. For example, a system may comprise a notification module to generate and transmit a notification to a client machine. The notification may be generated based on a defined end time of a selected auction. A subscription module may establish electronic communication with the client machine responsive to a subscription message received from the client machine in response to the notification. In some instances, the electronic communication is established using a push technology. An event filter may filter an event from a plurality of events related to the selected auction where the filtered event is a highest received bid in the selected auction. The filtered event may then be pushed to the client machine by the subscription module.

  • Publication number: 20170201430
    Abstract: A method and a system implementing a service level agreement based storage access system. A service level agreement based storage access system presents a single interface for data storage consumers and translates generic data operation requests to data operation request specific to a storage server. The SLA based storage access system also monitors storage server performance and may throttle processes to ensure service level agreements are not violated.

  • Patent number: 8601053
    Abstract: Multi-chassis fabric-backplane enterprise servers include a plurality of chassis managed collectively to form one or more provisioned servers. A central client coordinates gathering of provisioning and management information from the chassis, and arranges for distribution of control information to the chassis. One of the chassis may perform as a host or proxy with respect to information and control communication between the client and the chassis. Server provisioning and management information and commands move throughout the chassis via an Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol. Alternatively, the client may establish individual communication with a subset of the chassis, and directly communicate with chassis in the subset. Server provisioning and management information includes events generated when module status changes, such as when a module is inserted and becomes available, and when a module fails and is no longer available.

  • Patent number: 8443066
    Abstract: A networked computing system is taught that may be operated as one or more provisioned servers, each of the provisioned servers including capabilities as identified by a corresponding set of specifications and attributes, according to various embodiments. Typically the specifications (or constraints) and attributes are specified with a Server Configuration File. The networked computing system may be provisioned into any combination and number of servers according to needed processing and I/O capabilities. Each of these servers may include distinct compute, storage, and networking performance. Provisioned servers may be managed similar to conventional servers, including operations such as boot and shutting down.

  • Patent number: 8145785
    Abstract: Real time provisioning and management of fabric-backplane enterprise servers includes monitoring system status and configuration, displaying monitoring results, accepting user commands, and providing hardware and software management and configuration commands to the system. In one embodiment, an event is generated when a pluggable module is inserted into the system. In response to the event, the availability of the pluggable module is displayed to a system operator, and the operator enters a command to provision a server that includes the pluggable module. The server provisioning command is processed, resulting in a hardware configuration command being issued to the system, and an event indicating a status associated with processing the command is returned. The recognition of the inserted module, the display to the operator, and the processing of the server provisioning command occur in real time.

  • Patent number: 7979552
    Abstract: A system is taught in which a module having processing elements can access network and storage interfaces that are external to the module of the processing elements as though those interfaces were located internal to the module of the processing elements.

Typically the specifications (or constraints) and attributes are specified with a Server Configuration File.
