  • Patent number: 10169094
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a system for dynamic transaction-persistent server load balancing. The disclosed system receives a client request associated with a new transaction. In response to receiving the client request, the system dynamically infers relative capacities of a plurality of servers coupled to the device in a network. In particular, the system maintains a set of variables corresponding to the servers. Each variable indicates a number of outstanding requests transmitted from the device to a respective server. The system infers relative server capacities and transmission latencies between the device and the servers based on a comparison of current values of the variables. The system identifies and selects a server associated with high capacity or low transmission latency between the device and the server relative to one or more other servers, and transmits an outstanding request corresponding to the client request from the new transaction to the identified server.

  • Patent number: 10122676
    Abstract: A virtual private router (VPR) intercepts DNS requests and returns a pseudo IP address to the requesting application and the pseudo IP address is mapped to a domain name in the request. Requests for content including the pseudo IP address are modified to include the corresponding domain name and transmitted to an intermediary server, which resolves the domain name to a real IP address and forwards the content request. The content is received by the intermediary server, which returns it to the requesting application, such as by way of the VPR. Real IP addresses may be returned by the intermediary server such that subsequent content requests to the domain name may bypass the intermediary server. Requests for certain domains, ports, and/or protocols may bypass the intermediary server such that the VPR resolves the domain names to real IP addresses.

  • Patent number: 10044756
    Abstract: An application deployed in a public cloud is enabled to access an on-premises resource securely and without requiring additional ports on a firewall. A pair of security gateways is instantiated, one at the cloud, and another located on-premises. Each gateway can access information that is necessary to locate and establish a secure connection to the on-premises resource. In response to a determination that the application needs to access the on-premises resource, the data set is used to locate the resource. A communication request is then issued from the cloud gateway to the on-premises gateway over a socket-based communication channel established between the gateways. The communication request is sent over an HTTP-based protocol such that the application is able to access the on-premises resource without requiring an additional IP address/port to be defined at the firewall. Proxied connectivity is then enabled from the application to the on-premises resource.
