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 latency measurements, receive application health data, determine optimal data center and access point based on latency and health information, and send DNS responses to client devices. The claims cover various aspects such as receiving DNS requests, storing measurements, selecting data centers based on application health, and including metadata in DNS responses. Additionally, the patent includes instructions stored on a computer-readable medium that, when executed by a processor, enable the processor to perform the steps outlined in the method claims, emphasizing the importance of optimizing network latency for efficient application delivery.
