Its key features are high performance, a light footprint, and live streaming. Potential applications range from content delivery networks, including HD streaming setups, to offline-caching filesystems, to file sharing, to distribution of in-game maps or textures.
CloudStack is a complete package for managing cloud computing and virtual infrastructure. It enables users to easily build, manage, and deploy private and public clouds. CloudStack provides an integrated software solution for delivering virtual data centers as a service, delivering all of the essential components used to build, deploy, and manage multi-tier and multi-tenant cloud applications in a simple-to-install software package. The CloudStack platform includes a management server with a Web user interface and extensions to support a variety of hypervisor software (e.g. XenServer, Xen VMware, and KVM) installed on computing nodes running across multiple networks. The centralized management server scales linearly, eliminating the need for intermediate cluster-level management servers. CloudStack automatically configures a guest virtual machine’s networking, storage, and authentication settings. The software can also integrate with physical components such as switches, routers, load balancers, and firewalls.
Gerbil consists of an interactive visualization tool targeted at multispectral and hyperspectral image data, and a toolbox of common algorithms, e.g. for segmentation. Multispectral imaging has been gaining popularity and has been gradually applied to many fields besides remote sensing. However, due to the high dimensionality of the data, both human observers and computers have difficulty interpreting this wealth of information. Gerbil facilitates the visualization of the relationship between spectral and topological information in a novel fashion. It puts emphasis on the spectral gradient, which is shown to provide enhanced information for many reflectance analysis tasks. It also includes a rich toolbox for evaluation of image segmentation and other algorithms in the multispectral domain. The parallel coordinates visualization technique is combined with hashing for a highly interactive visual connection between spectral distribution, spectral gradient, and topology.
Database Deployment Manager (DDM) is a desktop oriented multi-platform database design tool that allows database administrators and programmers to create database structures (using an object oriented methodology) and deploy them into an existing database. The tool allows creation of diagrams to identify basic relations between the defined structures. You can import tables from various databases, either by fully reversing a database or just picking tables from various databases and injecting them into your solution. You can browse the databases and execute SQL queries on them. There is a unique SELECT query builder that makes the building of queries very easy without having to write a single SQL statement; just using point and click with the mouse.
CPC (Continuation Passing C) is a programming language designed for writing concurrent systems. The CPC programmer manipulates very lightweight threads, choosing whether they should be cooperatively or preemptively scheduled at any given point; the CPC program is then processed by the CPC translator, which produces highly efficient event-loop code. This approach gives the best both worlds: the relative convenience of programming with threads, and the low memory usage of event-loop code. The semantics of CPC is defined as a source-to-source translation from CPC into plain C using a technique known as conversion into Continuation Passing Style. The current implementation of CPC has been used to write Hekate, a BitTorrent seeder designed to handle millions of simultaneous torrents and tens of thousands of simultaneously connected peers.
ArtTk is a graphic library based on Java/Swing offering an open development toolkit intended specifically for scientific and technical applications. It provides a set of widgets and functional modules a set of support modules (helpers) permitting dynamic definition of menus and tool bars from simple XML configured files, and supporting tooltips, icons, action commands, etc.; a very adaptable generic desktop, facilitating the assembly of Swing components in a specialized GUI; an extended Grid layout to simplify the development of advanced scientific applications; and a set of scientific and technical widgets, such as a dynamic memory footprint monitor, simple key-values based fields editors, a generic color gradient editor, etc.
