A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11829952B1) discloses a resource management system designed to efficiently manage remote and local data. The system includes a declarative client that retrieves, tracks, and caches data in response to auto-generated queries from an end-user interface. This client sits on an immutable image served by web services of a secure cloud platform. A serverless compute engine processes tasks within a secure container generated from the immutable image. An application programming interface extracts data based on the auto-generated queries, with a cache breaking up query results into individual objects for faster execution. Additionally, a scalable domain name system router and cache proxies optimize access to cloud applications, while a storage device stores data based on access patterns.

Furthermore, the system incorporates features such as a distribution module for efficient content storage, a serverless orchestration module for routing publications, and authentication servers for managing accessibility rights. The system also includes components for optimizing messaging services, facilitating payment transactions, and generating user pools for data access configuration. Notably, the system leverages a two-way authentication process involving global positioning data for enhanced security. Additionally, functionalities for managing service professional referrals, accepting referrals and quotes electronically through mobile devices, and utilizing shared cryptographic secrets for transactions are highlighted. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive resource management system that integrates various components to streamline data retrieval, processing, and access in a secure and efficient manner.
