U Cambridge Computer Laboratory - Xen virtual machine monitor: "Xen is a virtual machine monitor for x86 that supports execution of multiple guest operating systems with unprecedented levels of performance and resource isolation. " It's open source.  OS's must be modified to run under it.  Interesting comparison of performance vs. vmware and user mode linux, and an Oct 2003 academic paper.  Running PostgreSQL or Apache specmarks, vmware runs under 50% of raw Linux and Xen runs 90%.  8:01:44 AM  permalink  

Plex86 - An x86 Virtual Machine: "Plex86 is an OSS virtual machine project for x86. It can be used on its own to run Linux VMs using lightweight VM technology, or in conjunction with the bochs emulator as an accelerator to run non VM-friendly OSes."  Last activity mid-2003.  7:52:31 AM  permalink  

Onion Networks: WAN Transport, Swarmcast, WebRAID, Antflow: Products for enterprise and wide area content distribution.  Originally commercialized through OpenCola, now reorganized into this company, that has some fast transfer technology and plans a new version of Swarmcast soon.

  • Fast parallel Scatter/Gather transfer (often 10x faster than FTP)
  • Automated data transfer with drag-and-drop Hot Folders.
  • Users are automatically notified by e-mail when a new file arrives.
  • Secure, firewall-friendly, encrypted data transfer

Maven from Apache: "Maven is a Java project management and project comprehension tool. Maven is based on the concept of a project object model (POM) in that all the artifacts produced by Maven are a result of consulting a well defined model for your project. Builds, documentation, source metrics, and source cross-references are all controlled by your POM. .. The intent of Maven is to make intra-project development highly manageable in the hopes of providing more time for cross-project development."  7:46:22 AM  permalink
