NASLite is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) server operating system designed to transform a basic computer into a dedicated file server. Utilizing highly optimized versions of Samba, uCLibc, BusyBox, and various other Linux tools, it provides SMB/CIFS, FTP, or NFS filesystem support. It accommodates multiple client OSes: Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. NASLite offers SMART disk monitoring and large file support, and is incredibly easy to install and administer.
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution ("LiveCD") for system administrators, based on Debian testing. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.
Einarc is a unified storage RAID command line interface and an API that provides management for various hardware/software RAID devices, uniting them all in a single paradigm. Einarc works as a translator that makes it possible for a user to control all these devices using simple terms like "physical disc", "logical disc", "adapter", etc., while transparently converting these requests to proprietary RAID paradigms.
Dconf is a tool to collect a system's hardware and software configuration. It allows you to take your system configuration with you and compare systems (like nodes in a cluster) to troubleshoot hardware or software problems. It can also be configured to send out configuration changes at given intervals to a group of people, or store a new snapshot when system changes happen.
Sstat is a kernel module for Linux 2.6 aimed at providing basic SCSI I/O statistics. While better tools exist for monitoring disk activity, SCSI (or Fibre Channel) tapes have been neglected so far. This module compiles out-of-tree and uses Kprobes to access the information needed so it can be used with "enterprise" kernels as well (where recompilation or rebooting are not acceptable).
libcdorganizer is a user space library used to abstract control of multiple CD organizer devices into a single interface. It uses libusb to control all USB devices, and is abstract enough that it should be able to control non-USB devices. It supports the Dacal DC-300 and KDS CDM-751.
