rpmorphan finds "orphaned" RPM packages on your system (packages which have no other packages depending on their installation). Console and graphical interfaces are provided. It is clone of the deborphan Debian program, but for RPM packages. It provides also some others RPM tools: rpmusage, rpmdep, and rpmduplicates.
Virt-Factory is a framework for managing a large number of Xen virtual machines, such as might be found in data centers or large lab configurations. It works by managing a pool of registered physical hosts and then deploying virtual machines, which have specific roles as defined by their "profiles" (profiles act as shareable virtual appliance definitions), onto those hosts. Virt-Factory provides both a Web UI (for ease of use) and an XML-RPC API (for scripting of admin actions). A command line interface (along with other advanced batch management features) is coming soon.
dpkg-du is a script to produce a dump of the installed size of Debian packages in du format. This is to enable ease of reuse with pre-existing scripts administrators may have to deal with 'du' format lists. For example, dpkg-du|sort -n|tail -10 will show the 10 biggest packages on your system.
BitNami RubyStack provides a fast, easy way to develop and deploy Ruby on Rails applications. It includes Ruby, Subversion, MySQL, SQLite, ImageMagick, and several Ruby Gems, and will optionally install Apache 2.2 with rewrite and proxy support. It supports Windows, Linux, and OS X, so you can share the same Rails environment on multiple platforms.
Repo-proxy is a package repository proxy. When a package manager is configured to use repo-proxy, all package requests will be copied and stored in a local cache directory for future use. If you have more than one machine on a local network, they can all share the same package download cache, saving bandwidth and lengthy download times. Repo-proxy can be run using several different methods to accept requests from clients (package managers such as apt-get or smart) for Release and/or Package files.
DIASER is a cloud storage class combined geo-data replication, long-term archive system, and WAN vault application. Manage long term mixed data archives generated by existing backup software. Ensure availability using commodity hardware. Retain administrative and financial control. It combines a disk-based backup volume management system and triple redundancy with a storage architecture designed to structure months to years of long term sustainable archiving space. It is a quick and low-cost way to make an environment more robust by backing up data in multiple places. This replication also provides fast retrieval of archived data from all node hosting locations. A Perl installer creates the system. Nodes can be dedicated to storage or used for existing services over unused bandwidth. DIASER works in user space over SSH.
The HP Linux Common Operating Environment (LinuxCOE) is a global engineering program which facilitates provisioning and lifecycle support of Linux systems. Key deliverables are to increase reliability, availability, maintainability, and performance of global infrastructure and production environments by maintaining a minimum number of platform and component configurations.
