StarCluster is a utility for creating traditional computing clusters used in research labs or for general distributed computing applications on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It uses a simple configuration file provided by the user to request cloud resources from Amazon and to automatically configure them with a queuing system, an NFS shared /home directory, passwordless SSH, OpenMPI, and ~140GB scratch disk space. It consists of a Python library and a simple command line interface to the library. For end-users, the command line interface provides simple intuitive options for getting started with distributed computing on EC2 (i.e. starting/stopping clusters, managing AMIs, etc). For developers, the library wraps the EC2 API to provide a simplified interface for launching/terminating nodes, executing commands on the nodes, copying files to/from the nodes, etc.

The Palabos library offers a framework in C++ for fluid flow simulations with the lattice Boltzmann (LB) method. Originally conceived as a research tool for lattice Boltzmann models, the code has evolved into a general-purpose program for computational fluid dynamics. The programming interface is straightforward and offers an access to the rich world of lattice Boltzmann, even to an audience with restricted theoretical knowledge of this method. A special emphasis is put on high performance and parallel computing.
PHTML Encoder encodes PHP scripts before distributing them. The script code is encrypted before saving. PHTML Encoder includes console and GUI versions of the converter. You can lock your scripts to a predefined machine via machine ID, and can combine protected/unprotected scripts on one website.
The pylib library features the popular py.test command line tool for rapidly writing and running tests in Python and py.execnet, a new way to do ad-hoc distribution of Python code to remote processes. py.test runs well on Linux, Windows, and OSX using Python 2.4 through to 2.6. It can distribute a single test run to multiple machines. It is used in many projects, ranging from running tens of thousands of tests integrated with buildbot to a few inlined tests on a command line script.
