PyAMF provides Action Message Format (AMF) support for Python that is compatible with the Adobe Flash Player. It includes integration with Python Web frameworks like Django, Pylons, Twisted, SQLAlchemy, and more. The Adobe Integrated Runtime and Adobe Flash Player use AMF to communicate between an application and a remote server. AMF encodes remote procedure calls (RPC) into a compact binary representation that can be transferred over HTTP/HTTPS or the RTMP/RTMPS protocol. Objects and data values are serialized into this binary format, which increases performance, allowing applications to load data up to 10 times faster than with text-based formats such as XML or SOAP.
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.
