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.
Duplicati is a backup system and an implementation of Duplicity. Duplicati enables you to set up and monitor backups on Windows or Linux. Duplicati is based on the Linux-only Duplicity backup system. Duplicati has a very user friendly interface that allows you to configure and monitor your backups. It supports backing up to a variety of destinations, such as a network folder, a USB disk, a remote FTP server, a remote SSH server, Amazon S3 storage, or a WebDAV enabled server. All backups can be encrypted and are digtally signed, so that no other person can read or tamper with the backed up data.
ECommands is intended to make it easy to execute commands over Unix/Linux Servers using a Web interface. It was implemented completely in Python and Django, and it will work from automation processes to generalization commands. It allows centralized administration, better understanding of repetitive and complex operating systems commands, connections made over SSH to multiple servers using a Web console, auditory feedback over the execution of commands processes on servers, multiple users and permissions, easy installation on 64-bit Linux, grouping commands, and more.
