Nexenta is a complete GNU-based operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime. The Debian system is used for software distribution and packaging to glue the numerous pieces together. However, Nexenta is not currently part of the Debian Project, nor are its packages present in the Debian database. It includes Apache, MySQL, Perl, Python, PHP, Firefox, Evolution, a software update manager, Synaptic package manager, Gaim, Abiword, administration and development utilities, editors, graphics, GNOME, interpreters, libraries, and much more.
namebench finds the best DNS servers to use for your machine, benchmarks them, and outputs pretty graphs to tell you why they are optimal. It supports multiple data sources such as Alexa, your browser history, or tcpdump replays in order to generate the most relevant and individualized recommendation.
MirrorBrain is a framework to run a content delivery network using mirror servers. It solves a challenge that many popular open source projects face: a flood of download requests, often magnitudes more than a single site could practically handle. A central (and probably the most obvious) part is a "download redirector" that automatically redirects requests from Web browsers or download programs to a mirror server near them. Choosing a suitable mirror for a user's request is the key, and MirrorBrain uses geolocation and global routing data to make a sensible choice and achieve load-balancing for the mirrors at the same time. The algorithm is both sophisticated and easy to control and tune. In addition, MirrorBrain monitors mirrors, scans them for files, generates mirror lists, and more.
Rasqal is a C library for querying RDF graphs, supporting the SPARQL, RDQL, and LAQRS languages. It provides APIs for creating a query and parsing query syntax. It features pluggable triple-stores and matching interfaces, query engines for executing the queries, an API for manipulating results as bindings, and multiple ways to format the results to XML, CSV, TSV, and JSON. It uses the Raptor RDF parser to return triples from RDF content, and can alternatively work with the Redland RDF library's persistent triple stores. It is portable across many POSIX systems.
ServingXML is a markup language for expressing XML pipelines and an extensible Java framework for defining the elements of the language. It defines a vocabulary for expressing flat-XML, XML-flat, flat-flat, and XML-XML transformations in pipelines. The accompanying console app supports reading content as XML files, flat files, SQL queries, or SAX events, and writing it as XML, HTML, PDF, or mail attachments. This software is especially suited for converting flat file or database records to XML, with its support for namespaces, variant record types, multi-valued fields, segments and repeating groups, hierarchical grouping of records, and row-by-row validation with XML Schema. There is also an API for embedding the software in a Java application.
OpenEJB is a simple, lightweight Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) container and server. You can embed OpenEJB in your own applications, or in a Web application server like Tomcat, or run it as a standalone EJB server. It supports EJB 3.0, 2.1, 2.0, and 1.1, and has partial support for EJB 3.1.
Citrus is a test framework written in Java that enables automated integration testing of message-based enterprise SOA applications. The tool can easily simulate surrounding systems across various transports and protocols (e.g. JMS, SOAP WebServices, HTTP, TCP/IP, etc.) in order to perform end-to-end use case testing. Citrus provides strong validation mechanisms for XML message contents and allows you to build complex testing logic such as sending and receiving messages, database validation, automatic retries, variable definitions, dynamic message contents, error simulation, and many more.
