The Pegasus Workflow Management System encompasses a set of technologies which help workflow-based applications execute in a number of different environments, including desktops, campus clusters, grids, and clouds. It bridges the scientific domain and the execution environment by automatically mapping high-level workflow descriptions onto distributed resources. It automatically locates the necessary input data and computational resources necessary for workflow execution. It enables scientists to construct workflows in abstract terms without worrying about the details of the underlying execution environment or the particulars of the low-level specifications required by the middleware (Condor, Globus, or Amazon EC2). It bridges the current cyberinfrastructure by effectively coordinating multiple distributed resources.
OpenCenter provides a centralized graphical user interface and API that simplifies the operational activities associated with deploying, managing, and maintaining private clouds powered by OpenStack.

Cubes is a Python framework for online analytical processing (OLAP), multidimensional analysis, star and snowflake schema denormalization, and cube comptutation. It features a logical model that describes how data are being analyzed and reported, independent of physical data implementation, hierarchical dimensions (attributes that have hierarchical dependencies, such as category-subcategory or country-region), localizable metadata and data localization.
sqlamp is an implementation of Materialized Path, an efficient algorithm for working with hierarchical data structures. sqlamp uses (and depends on) SQLAlchemy. Materialized Path is a way to store (and fetch) trees in a relational databases. It is the compromise between Nested Sets and Adjacency Relations in respect to simplicity and efficiency.
MDS (Mandriva Directory Server), along with the Mandriva Management Console (MMC), is a powerful system that allows developers, system administrators, and other software vendors to manage users, groups, and their associated policies in both OpenLDAP server and Fedora Directory Server which allows multi-master replication. Its highly ergonomic interface design makes it very easy to use, and delegation of administration enables medium size organization to adopt MDS.
Pimp is a highly interactive and programmable music player. It can be controlled with an mpd client or via a Python interpreter. Files can be played directly, and file paths are recorded in a database. Files are identified by a "fingerprint" which allows the user to identify an audio file despite file moving and tag modification. Pimp aims to be a player framework with a really small core. All features are implemented in extensions. For example, a lot of player events such as play, seek, and pause are logged in the database.
