NiftyName is a system for creating and managing virtual machine pools and all related components such as storage, private and public networks. It is intended to be used as a free alternative to Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure. All components have been designed for multi-site active redundancy, though this is not supported yet. Its architecture is based on documented XML-RPC (SSL) Web services, so you can make your own derivative tools for it. Console and GTK+ client applications are provided. VMs are based on KVM. It supports IPv6, private VLANs, multiple interfaces, user/client management, permissions, and roles.
iBeans aims to make integration for Web applications much easier than it is today. It does this by focusing on simplicity and task-based integration and avoids technical jargon and new concepts wherever possible. It offers easy to use integration for doing things like publishing and subscribing to JMS queues and topics, sending and receiving email, polling resources such as databases and ATOM feeds, task scheduling, creating HTTP/Rest services, consuming external services such as Amazon EC2 and S3, Twitter, Flickr, Google, and much more. It proves a Tomcat distribution that drops straight into Tomcat, with no need to mess with your project dependencies, and works with developer tooling for Tomcat or Tcat. It has a very simple API using annotations. This means iBeans can be plugged into your existing Web apps easily. It includes easy unit and mock testing using JUnit. IBeans Central offers a great place to discover and try new iBeans in your applications.

LASIC is a language that facilitates creating and managing systems in a cloud environment. It allows you to create scripts that describe a system, its components, and the relationship between those components using a declarative syntax. Various verbs can then be applied to the script such as deploy (create a new system), shutdown, or runAction(run some action on components of the system). LASIC currently supports Amazon's cloud environment (AWS). LASIC stands for Language for Automating Systems in the Cloud.
TCPWebLog is a system that collects and aggregates Apache and Varnish Web server logs from multiple Linux computers. It uses a simple "client" program that pipes logs to a central server over a TCP connection, and a "server" program that receive the logs and quickly aggregates or splits them.
LogPipe is a module that extends the default PHP error handling function. It allows you to send logs to syslog, or pipe them to an external program. It extends a standard log line to contain the IP address and host name of the server under which the current script is executing, and the client IP address. The IP address and host name can be used by an external program to split or aggregate logs based on the virtual host. This module has been designed mainly as a complement for the TCPWebLog project.
