Karesansui is a virtualization management console with a Web-based user interface that supports Linux servers. It allows virtual machine creation, start up, suspension, snapshot, and CPU/RAM allocation, all from a Web browser. The Xen hypervisor is supported. A RESTful architecture is implemented with HTTP-based APIs.
vidma is a utility for manipulating virtual disk images. It can show basic information about the image or resize it. Resizing is done by in-place modification of a file holding the image or by creating modified copy of such file. The only currently supported format is VDI (Virtual Disk Image), mostly used by VirtualBox.
Archipel is a solution to manage and supervise virtual machines. No matter if you have a few locally on your computer or thousands through data centers, Archipel is a central solution to manage them all. You can use all libvirt-supported virtualization engines like KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, or VMWare. You can perform all basic virtualization commands and many other things like live migration, VMCasts, packages, etc. Archipel uses XMPP for all communication. There is no Web service or custom protocol. You just need at least one XMPP server, like eJabberd, to start playing with it. This allows Archipel to work completely in real time. You never have to refresh the user interface. You'll be notified as soon as something happens. You can even use your favorite chat clients to command your infrastructure. You can open a chat conversation with your virtual machine and say things like "How are you today?" or "Hey, please reboot."
imvirt is a Perl script that tries to detect if it is called from within a virtualization container. This is detected by looking for well-known boot messages, directories, and reading DMI (Desktop Management Interface) data. The following containers are detected: Virtual PC/Virtual Server, VirtualBox, VMware, QEMU/KVM, Xen (para and non-para virtualized), OpenVZ/Virtuozzo, UML, and any HVM providing CPUID 0x40000000 detection.
abiCloud is a cloud computing platform manager that allows you to easily deploy a private cloud infrastructure. One of the key features is the Web rich interface for managing the infrastructure. You can deploy a new service just dragging and dropping a virtual machine. It allows you to deploy instances over VirtualBox, VMware, KVM, and Xen. It features user management through ACL, infrastructure and network management, an appliance repository, and the ability to easily design virtual datacenters.
Aloofix is conceptually similar to the Ubuntu JeOS (Just enough OS), but much more aggressive when it comes to the term "just enough". The build environment consists of a collection of Makefiles, scripts, and configuration files capable of creating a bootable ISO image. This ISO image contains a small set of scripts and utility programs for installing Aloofix on a primary hard drive in a VM environment. The build environment provides the raw materials for creating and provisioning a set of guest instances for VirtualBox, VMWare, and Qemu.
Firejail is a SUID sandbox program that reduces the risk of security breaches by restricting the running environment of untrusted applications using Linux namespaces. It currently implements hostname, filesystem, PID, IPC, and networking stack isolation, and it runs on any recent Linux system. It includes a sandbox profile for Mozilla Firefox. Firejail also expands the restricted shell facility found in bash by adding Linux namespace support. It supports sandboxing specific users upon login. The software also includes a small monitoring utility, firemon.
