systemd is a system and service manager for Linux, compatible with SysV and LSB init scripts. It provides aggressive parallelization capabilities, uses socket and D-Bus activation for starting services, offers on-demand starting of daemons, keeps track of processes using Linux cgroups, supports snapshotting and restoring of the system state, maintains mount and automount points, and implements an elaborate transactional dependency-based service control logic. It can work as a drop-in replacement for sysvinit.
KeyOS is an integrated IT management platform compliant with the principles behind ISO 20000. Easily expandable through a plugins system, it provides a wide set of management consoles and dashboards, and interoperability with other tools used by system administrators. It provides a Windows and Linux agent to provide inventory and monitoring of hardware assets, a Centreon-Nagios connector, monitoring for anti-virus and backup programs, remote assistance, a help-desk and ticketing system with request routing, escalation, and SLA management, VoIP integration, automated translation, time-sheets, and intervention reports, and more.
Simple Package Manager (SPM) is intended to operate in a way similar to existing package managers (apt, dpkg, Pacman, etc.). Instead of supporting a centralized package repository, SPM allows remote packages to be downloaded and installed automatically, given their URL. This allows a developer to package and distribute software via a package management system without having to worry about the many different formats and Linux distribution repositories.
Chev is a sane by default vulnerability check script that checks NIST and US Cert RSS feeds for a short list of software that you configure. It has two levels of priority, warn and critical, which allows for easy use with Nagios as a stand-alone script or in a cron job. Just add strings for your major pieces of software and chev will tell you when a vulnerability has been released.
