RBridge is a secure remote Ethernet bridge solution for Linux. It connects two trusted Ethernet segments remotely over UDP using either IPv4 or IPv6 transport. RBridge uses SHA-2 (precisely SHA-256) for authentication, AES for encryption and timestamps for protection against replay attacks. Using a registry mechanism and UDP protocol, RBridge is able to connect directly to the peer from within NAT or firewall protected areas by using a special hole punching technique (thus requiring no configuration at the connecting routers). For this functionality, RBridge itself is able to act as a registry service for any associated pair of RBridges.
footprint is a tool that makes it easier to create and manage kickstart files. It allows you to define systems, create profiles for systems, and macros per distribution. It can create kickstart files on the fly, make custom initrd (ramdisks), create custom bootfloppies, and can manage your DHCP and PXE configuration.
SLURM is a resource manager designed for Linux clusters of all sizes. It provides three key functions. First, it allocates exclusive and/or non-exclusive access to resources to users for some duration of time so that they can perform work. Second, it provides a framework for starting, executing, and monitoring work (typically a parallel job). Finally, it arbitrates conflicting requests for resources by managing a batch queue of pending work.
Channel is a C++ template framework for distributed message passing and event dispatching. Its major components (message IDs, routing algorithms...) are highly configurable as template parameters. As a namespace shared by peer threads, channels support publish/subscribe scope control, message filtering, and translation.
LibMySequoia provides an alternative library for MySQL C client library (libmysqlclient.so) to benefit from the Sequoia high availability and performance scalability clustering solution. Native MySQL client programs can use the Sequoia clustering solution without changing any line of code in the application. The benefit of this solution is that native C applications, PHP, Perl, and Python programs using the MySQL C API interface now can transparently connect to a Sequoia cluster.
PigeonReader is the Web mail client of the PigeonAir project, a solution for easily building clustered, scalable, and modular email services. PigeonReader is completely UTF-8 compliant, allowing any charset to be used. It is based on XML, which allows skins and themes to be easily written using the XSLT language. It was written to be easily used in a cluster of Web servers, where multiple and different domains are to be managed transparently to the end user, possibly with different skins, features, and configurations.
PigeonAdmin is the mail administration interface of the PigeonAir project, a solution for easily building clustered, scalable, and modular email services. PigeonAdmin allows many virtual domains of the mail server to be easily managed using a simple Web interface. It allows every domain to have a different configuration than any other. It also allows domain administrators to choose which configurations to force on their own users or which parameters the users will be able to configure and modify by themselves.
PigeonDeliver is the delivery agent of the PigeonAir project, a solution to easily build up clustered, scalable, and modular email services. PigeonDeliver is modular in nature, allowing it to be used on Postfix and other MTAs using their own native APIs without performance loss. It allows mail services to be easily and transparently distributed among a cluster of mail server, easily supporting new services and new modules added using the PigeonDeliver API, which simplifies writing filters and/or delivery agents.
Vatata is an end-to-end and large-scale solution for publishing, delivering, and receiving streaming content. This platform is an open system completely based on the Internet. Its grid and P2P technology provide low-cost and clear delivery of content to millions of Internet users. Users can easily build their individual Internet radio stations or TV stations through Vatata. Vatata supports broadcasting of streaming content in a LAN.
ClusterControl is a Web interface to simplify distributing and monitoring (bioinformatics) applications on Linux cluster systems. It is based on a modular concept that enables integration of command line oriented programs into the application framework of ClusterControl. The system enables integration of different applications accessed through one interface and executed on a distributed cluster system. It uses Apache, PHP, and OpenPBS or Sun Grid Engine.
