  • Patent number: 10693978
    Abstract: Methods and systems for data routing management are disclosed. A method can comprise a system receiving a request directed to an address. The system can determine performance capabilities of a first logical grouping of computing devices, wherein the first logical grouping of computing devices share the address. The system can determine whether at least one computing device of the first logical grouping of computing devices can receive the request. If at least one computing device of the first logical grouping of computing devices can receive the request, the request can be transmitted to the at least one computing device of the first logical grouping of computing devices. If at least one computing device of the first logical grouping of computing devices cannot receive the request, the request can be transmitted to a second logical grouping of computing devices that share the address.

  • Patent number: 10642669
    Abstract: An operating system provides an extensible share action to broker content sharing between applications executing on a computing platform such as a personal computer, tablet computer, or smartphone. The share action enables a consistent user experience for content sharing to be implemented across all applications and eliminates users having to switch from the current application they are using to some other functionality in order to share content. Applications can participate with the operating system share action as source applications and/or target applications. Source applications may describe what content is shareable given the current state of their application when the user chooses to invoke the share action. Target applications can be configured to receive the shared content from the source application according to content type, and will expose a companion view of their application to the user that is specifically tailored to facilitate sharing.

  • Patent number: 10565297
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enabling the real-time sharing of document edits as rumored changes are disclosed herein. As an editor makes changes to a document being coauthored, those edits may be entered into the editor's copy as concrete changes that are incorporated into the copy's backing store, and may be shared as rumored changes to endpoints that are not incorporated into their backing stores. Rumored changes display the endpoint's real-time interpretation of an edit made by an editor, but are not incorporated as concrete changes until a save command occurs. By enabling the real-time display of edits as rumored changes, editing users can make edits naturally and endpoint users can see those edits being made with a reduced chance of corruption on the endpoint and lower network overhead and processing by the computing devices involved in the coauthoring environment.

  • Patent number: 10454934
    Abstract: A method, a system and/or an apparatus of activity based access control in heterogeneous information technology infrastructure is disclosed. The infrastructure security server authenticates that a user is authorized to access a set of heterogeneous cloud-based services using at least one heterogeneous authorization system. The method monitors an activity of the user when accessing any of the set of heterogeneous cloud-based services over a period of time using a processor and a memory. The method dynamically adjusts access privileges to the set of heterogeneous cloud-based services. The adjustment to the access privileges includes a revocation of access to the user to a particular service of the set of heterogeneous cloud-based services and/or dynamically granting of access to the user to the particular service of the set of heterogeneous cloud-based services.

  • Patent number: 10419522
    Abstract: Systems and methods for synchronizing data across devices and mediating data sharing are described. In some embodiments, the systems can include a user device and at least one target device connected over a network for sharing event information. The user device and the target devices can include sensors thereon for detecting a gesture than can correspond to events that generate commands to perform tasks. Event information collected from the sensors can be compared and normalized using a cloud infrastructure to determine if the event is synchronized between the user device and the target devices such that the user device collected the same values as the target devices. If the event is synchronized, the system can perform the task. In some embodiments, the task can include synchronizing data between the user device and the target device while selectively choosing a target device for data sharing.

  • Patent number: 10379823
    Abstract: A processing device of a remote server identifies at least one control in an active application window and a plurality of control options associated with the at least one control. The active application window comprises a user interface in a first format generated by an application running on the remote server. The processing device generates a first metadata representation of the at least one control and of the plurality of control options and sends the first metadata representation to a mobile device communicatively coupled to the remote server. The mobile device generates a user interface in a second format based on the first metadata representation to present the control and the plurality of control options on the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10374955
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure will be described with regard to the processing of a client computing device DNS queries by a DNS processing service to determine an identifier associated with a previously instantiated hosted virtual machine instance. In one aspect, if the previously instantiated hosted virtual machine instance is instantiated, the DNS service can resolve the DNS query by transmitting network address information associated with the previously instantiated hosted virtual machine instance. In another aspect, if the previously instantiated hosted virtual machine instance is not instantiated, the DNS service can initiate a process to cause an instantiation of a hosted virtual machine instance based on the previously instantiated hosted virtual machine instance. The DNS service can then resolve the DNS query by transmitting network address information, or an alternative identifier, associated with the newly instantiated hosted virtual machine instance.
