jmemcached is a fast network available cache daemon. It is protocol-compatible with memcached, but written in Java and suitable for applications with portability concerns, where Java is the preferred solution, or for using the memcached protocol in embedded applications with alternate storage engines. Existing clients for memcache work unmodified. It can run as a standalone daemon or be embedded inside an existing Java application.
K-tree provides a scalable approach to clustering by combining the B+-tree and k-means algorithms. Clustering can be used to solve problems in signal processing, machine learning, and other contexts. It has recently been used to solve document clustering problems on the Wikipedia collection.
CloudVPN is a secure decentralized mesh networking tool. It allows applications to use it as a mesh transport layer for packet routing, easily creating mesh ethernet VPN, secured audio/video broadcasting or communication channels, etc. It can create secured networks with special or weird topologies, so it's very easy to create connection schemes with clustered/decentralized servers, topologies with better throughput, ring-like topologies for failover, long-line for passing through many routes, or tree topology for optimizing inter-server bandwidth needs.
Lucie is a cluster installation and configuration tool. It enables parallel network installation of large numbers of nodes from one single administration server. The Lucie installer performs HDD partitioning and installations of the Linux kernel and required software packages. The Lucie configurator then generates system and software configurations. Lucie is designed to be scalable and efficient, so a complete Linux cluster can be built from scratch in a short amount of time. Moreover, the whole installation process is designed to be fully automated.
StarCluster is a utility for creating traditional computing clusters used in research labs or for general distributed computing applications on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It uses a simple configuration file provided by the user to request cloud resources from Amazon and to automatically configure them with a queuing system, an NFS shared /home directory, passwordless SSH, OpenMPI, and ~140GB scratch disk space. It consists of a Python library and a simple command line interface to the library. For end-users, the command line interface provides simple intuitive options for getting started with distributed computing on EC2 (i.e. starting/stopping clusters, managing AMIs, etc). For developers, the library wraps the EC2 API to provide a simplified interface for launching/terminating nodes, executing commands on the nodes, copying files to/from the nodes, etc.
Crash Dummy is a Java Web application to help IT professionals set up Java application server environments. It has several features to help make this easier, including simulating failures and diagnostics. Crash Dummy is particularly helpful for setting up complex clustered environments and monitoring infrastructure.
BorderFlow implements a general-purpose graph clustering algorithm. It maximizes the inner to outer flow ratio from the border of each cluster to the rest of the graph. The main advantage of the algorithm is that it does not need parametrization to compute results of high accuracy.
Proto Balance Mail is an enterprise SMTP cluster solution that supports distribution of email accounts. It scales up to 1,000,000 mailboxes apportioned over up to 125 backend mail servers (8000 mailboxes per server). No NFS or SAN is required. SOA is configurable with SOAP/XML. Anti-spam settings can be set per-user. Grey-listing is supported. Mal-ware is automatically detected and infected client PCs are automatically black-listed. POP load balancing is done. SMTP AUTH is supported. There is a Web-based management interface. Spam blocking is done by on-the-fly connection behavior analysis. It handles up to 10,000 concurrent SMTP connections. Streamlined CRM integration is done with HTTP+XML posts. Email-alias lists, forwarding, and out-of-office auto-reply are supported.
