20120209901Multilevel Multipath Widely Distributed Computational Node Scenarios - An application combines on-site and cloud-based calculations. The application selects a cloud computing broker from a list sorted by load. The broker receives computation requests from the application, sends corresponding load-balanced requests to local application service hosts and cloud proxies, receives responses, and sends the responses to the application without identifying the response source as local versus non-local. Each proxy has a logical-physical mapping of cloud-resident worker nodes. A scheduler receives session requests from applications, allocates local and cloud computing resources to a session, and tracks resource usage by session. An application previously run only on-premises can be executed partially on cloud worker nodes without modification. The proxy re-routes unfulfilled requests from a failed worker, undetected by the broker. If all workers assigned to that proxy fail, then the broker reassigns unfulfilled requests to another proxy, undetected by the application.08-16-2012
20130041930DATA TRANSFER, SYNCHRONISING APPLICATIONS, AND LOW LATENCY NETWORKS - Asynchronous network interface and method of synchronisation between two applications on different computers is provided. The network interface contains snooping hardware which can be programmed to contain triggering values comprising either addresses, address ranges or other data which are to be matched. These data are termed “trip wires”. Once programmed, the interface monitors the data stream, including address data, passing through the interface for addresses and data which match the trip wires which have been set. On a match, the snooping hardware can generate interrupts, increment event counters, or perform some other application-specified action. The invention thus provides in-band synchronisation by using synchronisation primitives which are programmable by user level applications, while still delivering high bandwidth and low latency. The programming of the synchronisation primitives can be made by the sending and receiving applications independently of each other and no synchronisation information is required to traverse the network.02-14-2013
20100100579Decentralized signaling for distributed systems - Registration and deregistration of entities in a distributed directory, hosted in a distributed overlay network are carried out in a peer-to-peer manner.

The registration and deregistration process can use SIP or other protocols. Application-level connection setup is also carried out on an overlay of volatile nodes, in a peer-to-peer manner using IP as the communications protocol.

The XML-based symbolic computer language is object-oriented and is based on inherent principles of the LISP programming language. Accordingly, code and data are treated the same. The language provides built-in structures and functions for implementing neural networks and genetic programming. OLIN programs may be executed by a single computer, or via a multiprocessing environment, including distributing processing environments and multiprocessor computers.11-20-2008
