Arkeia Network Backup is designed for organizations that require fast, easy-to-use, and affordable data protection. It backs up critical data to disk, tape, and cloud storage. Arkeia protects all major virtual platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, XenServer, and more than 200 physical platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Netware, most UNIX flavors, and BSDs. The company’s source-side Progressive Deduplication technology helps users realize better performance at a lower cost by reducing data volumes. Arkeia’s deduplication is crucial to accelerating replication of on-premise backups to private or public clouds.
Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
MAPDAV (More Accurate Password Dictionary Attack Vector) is designed to use what is known about users via the /etc/passwd file on Unix/Linux systems to generate a dynamic dictionary of more accurate guesses as to what their possible password may be. It does this by mangling the user's username and user information in various user-specified ways to look for bad password protection practices.
autofwd is an automated firewalling daemon intended to block hosts performing unwanted acts. While it was designed to be used to thwart hosts running dictionary attacks on logins (of any service), it can be used for just about anything. The external commands it runs are configurable, allowing you to take additional actions against offending hosts such as running an nmap OS fingerprint before firewalling, or just silently logging the event.
Osgish is a command line shell for OSGi. It is based on the Readline Library, Jmx4Perl, as the OSGi backend, and Aries JMX as the OSGi Management layer. It is different than other OSGi shells, as it is implemented in pure Perl and provides unique features like wildcard support, context-sensitive command line completion, syntax highlighting, bulk lifecycle operations, advanced query facilities, and remoting via HTTP. It uses jmx4perl and Aries JMX OSGi bundles for accessing the OSGi container remotely.
Schedule::Cron is a Perl module that provides a simple but complete cron-like scheduler. It can be used for periodically executing Perl subroutines. The philosophy behind Schedule::Cron is to call subroutines periodically from within one single Perl program instead of letting cron trigger several (possibly different) Perl scripts. Everything under one roof. Furthermore, Schedule::Cron provides a mechanism to create crontab entries dynamically, which isn't that easy with cron. It knows about all extensions (at least all extensions the author is aware of, i.e those of "Vixie" cron) for crontab entries like ranges including 'steps', specification of month and days of the week by name, or coexistence of lists and ranges in the same field. It even supports a bit more (like lists and ranges with symbolic names). It has existed since 1999 on CPAN and is successfully used in many projects.
The Paranoid modules provide a number of routines that are intended for use in strict and taint-safe scripts. The modules cover a variety of tasks from command-line argument parsing to process and network management. All of the modules use a debug trace framework for diagnostic output that is easily used and extended for application code as well.
