Chief Database records time series data in real time. Data is compressed to reduce disk requirements and improve performance. Redo logging and caching provide high performance on minimal hardware, with minimal data loss in the event of hardware failure. 1 million coordinates can be processed per second on server-level hardware. All interfaces are SOAP; allowing for easy integration with other systems and Web sites. Data is usually from a telemetered resource, but can also come from SNMP. Chief Trends allows for trending data inside Firefox. Chief Calculator is a Perl calculation engine to manipulate the data in whatever way you want.
Archipel is a solution to manage and supervise virtual machines. No matter if you have a few locally on your computer or thousands through data centers, Archipel is a central solution to manage them all. You can use all libvirt-supported virtualization engines like KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, or VMWare. You can perform all basic virtualization commands and many other things like live migration, VMCasts, packages, etc. Archipel uses XMPP for all communication. There is no Web service or custom protocol. You just need at least one XMPP server, like eJabberd, to start playing with it. This allows Archipel to work completely in real time. You never have to refresh the user interface. You'll be notified as soon as something happens. You can even use your favorite chat clients to command your infrastructure. You can open a chat conversation with your virtual machine and say things like "How are you today?" or "Hey, please reboot."
