Ansible is a radically simple deployment, configuration, and command execution framework. It is dead simple and painless to extend. Extending Ansible does not require programming in any particular language; you can write modules as scripts or programs which return simple JSON. It’s also trivially easy to just execute useful shell commands.
Belier allows opening a shell or executing a command on a remote computer through an SSH session. The main feature of Belier is its ability to cross several intermediate computers before realizing the job. You can execute commands with any account available on the remote computer. It is possible to switch an account on intermediate computers before accessing the final computer, and Belier will generate one script for each final computer to reach.
ChiMeRA is a configuration management tool designed around three basic concepts. The first is a framework for managing servers, allowing for command execution and file transfer over SSH. The second is a repository for managing files that enables change tracking, archiving, and management of various user definable configuration files across multiple servers through a standard revision control tool. The third concept is an aesthetic principle of simplicity, giving administrators straightforward interfaces to manage complicated environments.
DSSH was written as a direct replacement for the OpenSSH client. It adds SSH over SSH tunneling capabilities (for example, to log in to a network hidden by a firewall), scripting support (using BeanShell), an advanced agent (which allows storing of passwords) and "su -" interactive logging for machines that have disabled direct root login. All of this was done to enable automated scripting and logging to many machines based on a few simple rules.
DynaFabric is an SSH-based command dispatching and systems management framework, designed for easy implementation on existing networks. It allows you to configure SSH key based authentication and centrally dispatch commands, manage installed software, maintain services, and enforce policies across your systems. It is designed to be platform agnostic; support is being developed for FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, Solaris 10, Solaris 11, and Illumos.
KeyBox is a Web-based SSH console for executing commands and managing multiple systems simultaneously. It allows you to share terminal commands and upload files to all your systems. Once the sessions have been opened you can select a single system or any combination on which to run your commands. Also, additional system administrators can be added and their terminal sessions and history can be audited.
