Publication number: US20220027245A1
Application number: 17/498,504

Abstract:
Techniques for data ingestion by a distributed-computing system are provided. In one embodiment, data received from one or more data sources is processed at a management node of the distributed-computing system. The data is generated by one or more components of an information processing system external to the distributed-computing system. The data is stored at the management plane. The management plane selects, from a plurality of data cores, a data core to ingest the data. The plurality of data cores are stored across one or more data plane containers of a data plane of the distributed-computing system. The management plane processes the data to generate one or more event records corresponding to the data. The one or more event records are sent to the selected data core, which causes the data plane to store the one or more event records in the selected data core.

Publication number: US20220027209A1
Application number: 17/498,592

Abstract:
Techniques are disclosed for reallocating host resources in a virtualized computing environment when certain criteria have been met. In some embodiments, a system identifies a host disabling event. In view of the disabling event, the system identifies a resource for reallocation from a first host to a second host. Based on the identification, the computer system disassociates the identified resource's virtual identifier from the first host device and associates the virtual identifier with the second host device. Thus, the techniques disclosed significantly reduce a system's planned and unplanned downtime.

Publication number: US20220029804A1
Application number: 17/498,460

Abstract:
Disclosed are various embodiments for providing access to a recovery key of a managed device and rotating the recovery key after it has been accessed. In one example, among others, a system includes a computing device and program instructions. The program instructions can cause the computing device to store a first recovery key for a first managed computing device. The first recovery key is configured to access an encrypted data store of the first managed computing device. A request is received for the first recovery key from a second managed computing device. The first recovery key is transmitted for display on the second managed computing device. A key rotation command is generated for a command queue of the first managed computing device to rotate the first recovery key after transmitting the first recovery key. The second recovery key is received from the second computing device.
