    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a novel method for deploying different virtual networks over several public cloud datacenters for different entities. For each entity, the method (1) identifies a set of public cloud datacenters of one or more public cloud providers to connect a set of machines of the entity, (2) deploys managed forwarding nodes (MFNs) for the entity in the identified set of public cloud datacenters, and then (3) configures the MFNs to implement a virtual network that connects the entity's set of machines across its identified set of public cloud datacenters. In some embodiments, the method identifies the set of public cloud datacenters for an entity by receiving input from the entity's network administrator. In some embodiments, this input specifies the public cloud providers to use and/or the public cloud regions in which the virtual network should be defined. Conjunctively, or alternatively, this input in some embodiments specifies actual public cloud datacenters to use.

    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes calculating ideal resource apportionments from a current set of consumable resources for each of a plurality of reservations. Each reservation corresponds to one of a plurality of customers. The method further includes running an apportionment process relative to the plurality of reservations. The running includes attempting to apportion to each reservation its ideal resource apportionment. The running yields an actual resource apportionment for each reservation. Each customer's actual resource apportionment comprises a sum of the actual resource apportionments for the customer's reservations. In addition, the method includes, responsive to an indication of unapportioned resources following the running, performing a first optimization to increase resource utilization by at least one needy customer.

  • Patent number: 11087265
    Abstract: Similar to other Cloud Service, Solution as Services over Cloud, as single tenant technology, also requires support of agility and flexibility as a fundamental feature of Cloud computing. Different from other Cloud services, the agility and flexibility typically are not triggered by the typical performance metrics, but at the business level of metrics. A causality analysis method, system, and non-transitory computer readable medium using a causal graph depicting relationships among observable primitive metrics from infrastructure, middleware, and business metrics and latent business metrics of an application, include identifying a metric value resulting from measuring the system and application metrics, determining an impact of the measurement of the metrics on the business metrics associated with the measurable metrics in the causal graph, and determining an action to take with respect to the impact on the business metric based on the pre-defined business policies.

  • Patent number: 11070575
    Abstract: Systems, methods, computer-readable media, and devices are disclosed for verifying traffic classification. At a first node, a classification to a received packet is designated according to a local model. The classification of the packet by the first node is verified by sending packet information describing the packet to a distributed network comprising multiple nodes, where the packet information includes attributes of the packet. The classification of the packet is verified from receiving results from a second node that, based on the attributes, independently classifies the packet. Based on the verified classification, decentralized information for classifying packets is updated.

  • Patent number: 11057907
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques that enable a telecommunication network to share available bandwidth within a cell of a base station node between different air-interface technologies, such as Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and 5G-New Radio (5G-NR). The available bandwidth may be shared based on bandwidth allocation rules and an analysis of network traffic, in real-time. Moreover, a Spectrum Sharing Optimization (SSO) system is described that can generate optimization data for delivery to a base station node. The optimization data may include computer-executable instructions that dynamically make use of time-division (i.e. configuring MBSFN subframes) and frequency-division techniques (i.e. configuring BWPs) to share available bandwidth within the cell of the base station node.

  • Patent number: 11005732
    Abstract: Methods, non-transitory computer readable media, network traffic management apparatuses, and network traffic management systems that identify a first service based on inspection of a message received from a server. The message is associated with a flow between a client and the server. The first service is incorporated in, or removed from a service chain associated with the flow. The message, or other received network traffic associated with the flow, is then steered according to the service chain. With this technology, network traffic can advantageously be processed and steered according to services within a service chain that more accurately reflect the communications occurring within particular flows with this technology. In particular, service chains for flows can advantageously be established or modified to account for server-speaks-first protocols, as well as protocols that may be used inside secure or encrypted connections.
