Originally named Sync4j, the Funambol Mobile Application server includes a suite of tools to develop, deploy, and manage mobile projects. It includes push email functionality and is a certified implementation of SyncML (OMA DS/DM standard). It includes a mobile application server with connectors to SQL relational databases, Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, and SugarCRM, applications for Outlook, Windows Mobile PocketPC, BlackBerry, Palm, and iPod for synchronizing address books and calendars, and a gateway for supporting mobile email. An SDK and an OMA DM server for remotely managing mobile devices are also included.
WISP-Dist is a modular embedded Linux distribution for wireless routers, but can be used for other purposes as well. The entire system fits in 8 MB flash/16 MB RAM. Highlights include an easy-to-use menu interface, commandline access, an Access Point mode (on selected cards), OSPF/RIPv2, bandwidth shaping, NAT, Layer 3 (proxy arp) bridging, and other goodies. The goal is to create an open, customizable, and easy-to-use solution for wireless routers.
Thinux is a thin-client server on a live CD. It boots a network of diskless computers to automatically start an application such as a Web browser. Each thin client machine acts as a cluster node to share its processing and memory resources with each other to take the load off the server. It is a turnkey solution that does not change nor rely on your existing systems to run. By booting from a removable CD, it does not lock-in the user so it is convenient to test. It is ideal for any organizations that require large deployment of software automatically and cost effectively.
BitNami MAPPStack is an easy-to-install, ready-to-run binary distribution of Apache, PostgreSQL, and PHP, including the phpPgAdmin tool. It runs in Mac OS X and allows you to quickly setup a development or production Web application environment. BitNami Stacks are easy to install, independent, integrated, and relocatable.
bbiso is a shell script used to build a CD image for a bootable Linux system which runs entirely in RAM on an i386 PC platform. It is a rewrite and update of Philip Howard's bick package for making an image for a bootable Linux CD using Peter Anvin's syslinux. It consists of a configurable script plus required executables from other GPLed sources. It is oriented towards small target systems, and would usually run on a development host on which a filesystem image could be built.
