VMware, Inc. is a U.S. software company that provides cloud and virtualization software and services, and claims to be the first to commercially successfully virtualize the x86 architecture. Founded in 1998, VMware is based in Palo Alto, California. In 2004 it was acquired by and became a subsidiary of EMC Corporation, then on August 14, 2007, EMC sold 15% of the company in a New York Stock Exchange IPO. The company trades under the symbol VMW.VMware's desktop software runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, while its enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi, are bare-metal hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.

Disclosed examples to configure an application blueprint involve selecting, during a runtime phase, a first service and a second service from a plurality of services mapped to a service template, the service template bound to a node by an application blueprint, the application blueprint generated during a design phase; generating, during the runtime phase, a first deployment profile to deploy a first application on the node in a cloud environment, the first deployment profile based on the application blueprint, the first deployment profile identifying the first service; and generating, during the runtime phase, a second deployment profile to deploy a second application on the node in the cloud environment based on the application blueprint, the second deployment profile identifying the second service.

A solution is provided for associating network traffic traversing a networked environment according to a selected category item, such as a user name or other network entity identity-related information. The solution includes a collector and a monitor. The collector extracts a user name and a network address from an event log maintained on the networked environment. The monitor receives the network traffic and identifies at least one packet having a network address that matches the extracted network address. After at least one of the packets is identified, the collector associates the identified packet(s) with the extracted user name.

The congestion notification system of some embodiments sends congestion notification messages from lower layer (e.g., closer to a network) components to higher layer (e.g., closer to a packet sender) components. When the higher layer components receive the congestion notification messages, the higher layer components reduce the sending rate of packets (in some cases the rate is reduced to zero) to allow the lower layer components to lower congestion (i.e., create more space in their queues by sending more data packets along the series of components). In some embodiments, the higher layer components resume full speed sending of packets after a threshold time elapses without further notification of congestion. In other embodiments, the higher layer components resume full speed sending of packets after receiving a message indicating reduced congestion in the lower layers.

A cloud computing environment consists of a cloud deployment platform and a cloud management server configured to manage a plurality of virtual machines deployed in a cloud infrastructure. When a request to deploy an application to the cloud infrastructure is received by the cloud deployment platform, application deployment errors are monitored and tracked. A unique identifier is generated for each virtual machine, and requests to instantiate the virtual machines in the cloud infrastructure are then transmitted. A log containing error records that identify the occurrence of deployment errors is monitored based on the generated virtual machine identifiers, where the deployment errors are detected by the cloud deployment platform or the cloud management server. Based on the monitoring, error messages are generated by the cloud deployment platform.

Techniques for converting desktop applications into cloud services are provided. In one embodiment, a server system can receive a representation of an application that has been extracted from an installation of the application on an end-user computing device. The representation can include a collection of files and configuration information associated with the application. The server system can then store the representation of the application in a server-side repository for deployment as a cloud service.

A method for reprovisioning a logical storage volume (151) for an application running in a computer system (100) that is connected to a storage system (130) via input-output command, IO, paths (601) and non-IO paths (602). The method comprises issuing (1716) a request to the storage system (130) via a said non-IO path (602) to increase a size of the logical storage volume (151) provisioned in a selected logical storage container (142); receiving acknowledgement of the increase in size from the storage system (130); and updating (1718) a metadata file associated with the logical storage volume (151) to indicate the increased size.

Managing virtual and real machines through a provisioning system. The provisioning system allows a user to create and manage machines through a self-service approach. The provisioning system interacts with one or more agents that manage the lifecycle of a machine. The system may provide templates that enable a user to readily create a virtual machine. The system may also include interfaces for administrators to manage virtual and real machine resources.

Techniques for surfacing host-side flash storage capacity to a plurality of VMs running on a host system are provided. In one embodiment, the host system creates, for each VM in the plurality of VMs, a flash storage space allocation in a flash storage device that is locally attached to the host system. The host system then causes the flash storage space allocation to be readable and writable by the VM as a virtual flash memory device.

A graphical user interface (GUI) is polled to identify updates for transmission to a client device. A generalized poll of the GUI is conducted at a first frequency, wherein the poll compares color values of each pixel in a general region of the GUI with a previously known color value for that pixel to detect changed pixel color values. A local region that is a subset of the general region is determined to have a greater likelihood of being updated, e.g., regions encompassing a location of mouse and/or keyboard activity. A localized poll is conducted at a second frequency of only the local region of the GUI.

In a computer system with a disk array that has physical storage devices arranged as logical storage units and is capable of carrying out hardware storage operations on a per logical storage unit basis, data movement operations can be carried out on a per-file basis. A data mover software component for use in a computer or storage system enables cloning and initialization of data to provide high data throughput without moving the data between the kernel and application levels.
