Application: Optimizing selection of zero trust network access cloud edge nodes for internal application delivery (Patent ID: US20230421471A1)

The patent filed by Cloud Software Group Inc. describes a system and method for a Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) service to optimize network latency by accessing measurements between access points, client devices, and data centers. The GSLB service receives health information about applications deployed across data centers, uses latency measurements to select the optimal data center and access point, and sends a DNS response to the client device with the identified optimal locations. The method involves receiving DNS requests, storing latency measurements, and determining the best data center based on application health and latency metrics.

The patent also includes claims for a network node with processors configured to access and analyze latency measurements, receive application health data, and send DNS responses to client devices. The processor eliminates or downgrades data centers with degraded application health, determines optimal access points and data centers based on latency, and includes metadata in DNS responses to indicate the selected data center. Additionally, the patent covers non-transitory computer-readable medium storing instructions for a service processor to perform the latency analysis, application health assessment, and DNS response generation. The instructions enable the processor to select the best data center by comparing application health and latency metrics, ensuring efficient and reliable GSLB services for network optimization.
