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.
qemu-diskp is a FUSE mounter to mount virtual disk images. Most virtual machine environments provide a raw disk model to the operating system(s) they host. Typically this raw disk is stored as a simple file rather than a dedicated hardware device. Since the file is a bit-image of what would normally be an actual hardware disk, it holds a complete disk layout. This makes it difficult to mount or manage each of the filesystems within that virtual disk image by the host machine, especially if the file for the image is itself a composite, such as a qemu qcow2 file. This project provides a FUSE based filesystem that presents each of the partitions in a full disk image as individual files. Those files may then be accessed by user-level applications (e.g. fsck or mke2fs) or loop-back mounted, enabling normal file system tools to examine or modify their contents.
