Userful Desktop is a locked-down and secure desktop Linux distribution designed for schools, libraries, kiosks, Internet cafes, digital signage, and public access computers. Customization and control is all done through the cloud: a simple and intuitive administration Web site. The "Userful MultiSeat" desktop virtualization software that supports Ethernet and USB connected zero clients is also included. Desktop settings can be managed for thousands of desktops at once via session profiles, which are created and stored in the cloud. Key features include time management, print cost recovery, Internet filtering, privacy protection, automated clean-up, remote desktop monitoring and control, prepaid cards, and automatic updates. It replaces both DiscoverStation and Desktop Server.
GlusterFS is a clustered filesystem capable of scaling to several petabytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. GlusterFS is based on a stackable user space design without compromising performance. It allows access via Swift API, SMB, NFSv3, QEMU/KVM, OpenStack Compute, OpenStack Block Storage, Xen, CloudStack, HDFS API, oVirt, and more, all in a unified backend which enables multiple, simultaneous access points to the same data stores.
Traffic Squeezer is a Linux kernel based WAN network traffic accelerator from Doublefish Solutions. It uses methods such as traffic compression, traffic PDU coalescing, protocol specific acceleration (such as TCP acceleration mechanisms), and quality of service. Traffic Squeezer also contains custom L7filters (application protocol filters), DPI (Deep Packet Engines) and so on to control and administrate your traffic. With Traffic Squeezer, you can optimize MPLS,ISDN, leased links, Satellite Networks, and Marine Internet, and even build your own custom WAN Appliance with Traffic Squeezer. A GUI is now supported via Doublefish Solution Aquarium. Aquarium is a Web-GUI that also supports Traffic Squeezer, Squid, and other open source solutions.
Dapper, or "Distributed and Parallel Program Execution Runtime", is a tool for taming the complexities of developing for large-scale cloud and grid computing, enabling the user to create distributed computations from the essentials: the code that will execute, along with a dataflow graph description. It supports rich execution semantics, carefree deployment, a robust control protocol, modification of the dataflow graph at runtime, and an intuitive user interface.
Symbolic is an enterprise platform designed to build, configure, and manage your huge and globally distributed data centers. It features cloud computing, Web manager virtual environments (Xen, KVM, and libvirt), clustering support, custom operations and scripts support, and user and role definitions.
CCI:U Open Course Labs is a Django-based Web application that interfaces cloud-computing infrastructure such as Amazon EC2 and NexR iCube Cloud. More backends may be added. It provides the access to cloud infrastructure in the form of "course labs" where course staff in an academy can manage the allocated computing resources and assignments easily. Course labs can also be used as course homepages.
DragonDisk is a powerful file manager for S3 compatible cloud storage services, such as Amazon S3 and Google Cloud Storage. It allows you to back up, share, and organize your data thanks to an intuitive interface. Features include multiple windows; copy / move between Amazon S3 accounts; a multi-threaded HTTP/HTTPS engine; drag and drop; rename files and folders; filename filters; BiTorrent, time limited, and signed URLs; client side encryption; a metadata editor; ACL inheritance; detailed operations logs; and support for versioning.
KaOS is a lightweight, multi-purpose embedded Linux platform designed for virtualization and cloud computing applications. KaOS is based on Linux KVM and is a true enterprise grade hypervisor platform. KaOS makes it easy to deploy KVM based virtualization solutions. KaOS is a lightweight platform, less than 10MB in size. The SDK provides everything necessary to rebuild the platform and comes with scripts to assist with building a KaOS-enabled Linux kernel. KaOS has a menu-driven CLI called AppQueue and a management process that replaces init and other functions called kattach.
