  • Patent number: 10708255
    Abstract: Shown is single sign-on support access to tenant accounts in a multi-tenant service platform involving a proxy user account in an identity provider for a tenant account on the service platform having security metadata associated therewith, mapping in the identity provider maps a support user to a proxy user identifier, a corresponding security endpoint in the service platform and mapping of the proxy user account identifier to the tenant account and security metadata. The identity provider authenticates a request to access the tenant account on the service platform, obtains the security credentials for the proxy user identifier, and sends a security assertion with the proxy user identifier and the security metadata to the security endpoint. The endpoint receives and validates the security assertion against the mapping for the proxy user identifier to the tenant account and the security metadata in the service platform, and permits access by the support user to the tenant account in the service platform.

  • Patent number: 10303795
    Abstract: In response to a read request directed to a first data store of a storage group, a state transition indicator is identified, corresponding to a modification that has been applied at the data store before a response to the read is prepared. A read descriptor that includes the state transition indicator and read repeatability verification metadata is prepared. The metadata can be used to check whether the read request is a repeatable read. The read descriptor is transmitted to a client-side component of the storage group.

  • Patent number: 10298401
    Abstract: A network traffic monitoring service provides a way to search network traffic intercepted by a network firewall while protecting the privacy of non-matching network traffic that traverses the firewall. Network traffic is parsed and processed into a set of tokens. In various implementations, the tokens may be words, HTML tags, data values, or other searchable units of information. The tokens are converted into a set of hashes, and the set of hashes is provided to the traffic monitoring service. A search authority submits a search request to the traffic monitoring service. Search terms of the search request are converted to a set of hashes to produce a hashed search request. The traffic monitoring service processes the hashed search request against the set of hashes provided by the network firewall to determine whether the network traffic represented by the set of hashes matches the search request.

  • Patent number: 10255378
    Abstract: Aspects define NoSQL database structures that support wide-column, document, and graph data models. Documents are defined with different, unique keys and stored to different rows in a wide-column store by mapping their respective, unique keys directly to different row keys. Columns are defined for the document rows as including pairs of names and values, each column field having a different column name. Graph edges are defined as a function of relationships between a first source document and a second of the documents as tuples of first source document keys, second document keys as targets, tags as labels of relationships, and values of objects associated with the relationships. The graph edges are stored as graph columns within rows of the first source documents with names that are different from names of other columns within the first source document rows.

  • Patent number: 10228856
    Abstract: A storage space management system for a thin provisioned virtual environment may comprise an over-allocation computation engine to compute an over-allocation metric for a virtual datastore. The over-allocation metric may be computed based on virtual storage space allocated to corresponding virtual machines and actual physical storage allocated to the virtual datastore. Further, the over-allocation metric may indicate extent of over-allocation of the actual physical storage to the virtual datastore. An available space computation engine may determine an available space metric for the virtual machines based on available datastore space and available physical storage space. An analysis engine may obtain a time value indicating time left within which storage space available for the virtual machines would be utilized.

  • Patent number: 10154090
    Abstract: A share group for a distributed volume is separated into two non-overlapping, cluster-local SGCs (share group cliques). Each SGC has an independent local meta-directory master hosted by a computing node of the SGC cluster. Each SGC maintains an independent local directory for the distributed volume. The directory may be spread across multiple computing nodes of the SGC cluster. Changes to the distributed volume (writes) are coordinated across the pair of SGCs to provide data consistency. The coordination of these changes is conducted using relatively few inter-SGC round-trips. Read access to the distributed volume is safely conducted without inter-SGC coordination.
