The p2pd package can be used to build scalable content distribution networks (CDNs) for interactive video-on-demand (VoD) streaming. It can be used as a server, a cache, and a client, and used to construct both traditional CDNs and P2P-based CDNs that make use of client resources to stream video files. The system is network aware, attempts to make efficient use of the available resources, and adapts to server failures.

Linfo displays system statistics such as disk space usage, network usage, hardware information, mounted file systems, hard drives, RAM, hostname, uptime, etc. The Linux version works by parsing the /proc and /sys filesystems and also by connecting to daemons such as hddtemp for determining physical health.
VDE (Virtual Distributed Ethernet) is an Ethernet compliant virtual network that can be spawned over a set of physical computers over the Internet. VDE is part of the virtualsquare project. VDE includes tools such as "vde_switch" and "vdeqemu". vde_switch provides several virtual ports where virtual machines, applications, virtual interfaces, and connectivity tools can be virtually plugged in. vdeqemu works as a wrapper for running qemu virtual machines that connect transparently to a specified vde_switch. VDE is also supported by qemu-kvm (KVM, Linux Kernel Virtual Machine) in versions 0.12.4 and later using the -net vde command-line option.
Altimate Firewall is a small and easy-to-use firewall, based on a hardened Gentoo system. It has an intuitive and easy-to-use Web interface.
