Associations Indexing Service (AIS) was originally done as an extension of human memory for tagging (storing under personal keywords and associations) resources, URIs, bookmarks, and memos (for fast access to the information in future) by using the same keywords or queries, similar to popular search engines. It can be seen as a local search engine, used as an automatic indexer of big file hierarchies (e.g. personal archives or files repositories). It is based on Lucene, so the application will remain very fast with any size index.
Attic is a deduplicating backup program. The main goal of attic is to provide an efficient and secure way to back up data. The data deduplication technique used makes Attic suitable for daily backups since only actual changes are stored. Main features: space efficient storage, optional data encryption, and off-site backups.
AutoCfgBackup is a platform-independent tool to automatically collect and archive the configuration of network devices like switches and routers. Supported devices include Cisco routers, Extreme network switches, or Zyxels. Almost any network device can be integrated. Configuration is only archived if it has changed. Archives will be created automatically with RCS or a simple rollover scheme.
Autodl2 is a simple to manage and extensible file transfer system that can be configured simply using a configuration file. The system is designed to be lightweight and handle multiple file transfer protocols. Currently only SFTP is supported, though other systems can be added via a plugin system.
AutoRPM is a program that can do any combination of the following: mirror RPMs from an FTP site, keep installed RPMs consistent with an FTP site or local directory and keep installed RPMs in a cluster or network of systems consistent. It is highly flexible and contains a fully command-line driven interactive install mode (for installing RPMs from the queue or for installing RPMs from your system interactively). It also handles recursive dependencies, multiple versions of the same RPM, the same RPM with multiple architectures, and more. It does some of the same tasks as up2date and AutoUpdate.
AutoUpdate is a Perl script which performs a task similar to Red Hat's up2date or autorpm. It can be used to automatically download and upgrade RPMs from different HTTP(S) or (S)FTP sites, while also handling dependencies. Moreover, it can also be used to keep a server with a customized (Red Hat) distribution plus all clients up to date.
BAR is backup archiver program to create compressed and encrypted archives of files that can be stored on a hard disk, CD, DVD, BD, or directly on a server via FTP, SCP, or SFTP. A server mode and a scheduler are integrated for making automated backups in the background. A graphical front end that can connect to the (remote) server is included.
