U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Oregon (Dec. 19)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 19 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Oregon.

*** Intel Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 19 -- Intel, Santa Clara, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,336,046) developed by four co-inventors for a "dynamic VM cloning on request from application based on mapping of virtual hardware configuration to the identified physical hardware resources." The co-inventors are Mic Bowman, Beaverton, Ore., Rob Knauerhase, Portland, Ore., Paul Brett, Hillsboro, Ore., and Robert Adams, Lake Oswego, Ore.


The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Methods and apparatuses enable creation of a virtual machine (VM) clone initiated through application or service logic. The application requests generation of a VM clone from within the runtime execution of the application. The request is serviced by a VM generator, which identifies a state of the VM to clone and identifies hardware resources on which to create the VM clone. Based on a determination of what resources on which to generate the VM clone, the VM generator creates the VM clone on the determined resources, having the identified state. In one embodiment, a use case of resource copy or reference copy is selected for each resource. In one embodiment, the VM generator considers a number of factors in determining where to instantiate the VM clone. The parameters may include hints or preference parameters sent by the application and/or resource loading or performance." The patent application was filed on Dec. 29, 2006 (11/648,251).

Sharoff, Beaverton, Ore., Vivek Kashyap, Beaverton, Ore., and Chandrasekhara Seetharaman, Portland, Ore., for a "management, control, and monitoring of workload including unrelated processes of different containers." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A first computer program runs in user memory space of a computing environment, and a second computer program runs in kernel memory space of the computing environment. The first computer program determines processes that constitute a workload. The second computer program creates a workload identifier corresponding to the workload, and associates the processes with the workload identifier. The first computer program requests metrics regarding the workload. In response, the second computer program collects such metrics by collecting metrics regarding the processes that constitute the workload and that are associated with the workload identifier The second computer program reports the metrics regarding the workload to the first computer program." The patent application was filed on June 16, 2008 (12/140,178).
