Application: Multicloud hosting for containerized applications (Patent ID: US20240080264A1)

The patent filed by the Royal Bank of Canada describes a method and system for deploying a containerized application from a central application management hub to multiple cloud environments. The process involves receiving the application and environment file, consulting a routing table to determine network paths for each environment, generating packets of the application, and sending them to the respective operators of the cloud environments for deployment. The method ensures efficient deployment across different cloud environments by utilizing container orchestration platforms, cloud services platforms, and cloud computing security services specific to each environment.

Furthermore, the system includes a processor and memory to implement the deployment steps, ensuring that each cloud environment has the necessary components for successful deployment. The system also incorporates a control plane to manage the deployment process, including operator services that govern how the application is deployed in various cloud locations. By utilizing a routing table for data packets and ensuring a common control plane shared across multiple applications and cloud environments, the method and system streamline the deployment process and enhance overall efficiency in managing containerized applications across diverse cloud environments.
