Application: Systems and methods for modeling and analysis of infrastructure services provided by cloud services provider systems (Patent ID: US20230342699A1)

The patent filed by Stripe Inc. describes systems and methods for modeling and analyzing the infrastructure of a commerce platform provided by cloud services providers. The method involves receiving spending reports and service reports, generating a directed graph to model costs of service usage, analyzing the graph to attribute costs, and generating a report indicating cloud service provider costs attributable to services of the commerce platform system. The system allows for adjustments to resource deployment based on the report and can automatically configure usage based on detected inconsistencies.

The method also includes receiving user instructions for reconfiguration based on the report, generating a graphical user interface to display cost information, comparing costs over different periods, and automatically configuring services based on cost increases. The directed graph used in the analysis is a flow graph with resource deployment adjustments applied to nodes and edges, allowing for maximum flow analysis to determine adjusted service usage. The system involves a processor and memory to execute the instructions for performing the operations described, including receiving reports, analyzing data, generating graphs, and transmitting reports to developers of the commerce platform system services.
