Rsyncmanager is a daemon designed to simplify the task of coordinating multiple file transfers to or from a machine. It was originally written to serve as the managing hub of a backup system that used rsync to feed in files from many other machines, so that all backups could be run from a single place. It can be used to coordinate any kind of regular file transfer, from a simple hourly copy of an email store from a primary to a backup server, to multiple concurrent rsyncs to multiple machines on varying schedules.
SALI (Sara Automatic Linux Installer) is a tool that allows you to install Linux on multiple machines at once. It support several protocols for downloading by way of aria2 to install a machine.

SALI is mostly used in cluster setups.
