  • Observium – Observium is an autodiscovering SNMP based network monitoring platform written in PHP which includes support for a wide range of network hardware and operating systems including Cisco, Windows, Linux, HP, Dell, FreeBSD, Juniper, Brocade, Netscaler, NetApp and many more. Observium has grown out of a lack of network monitoring platforms which are both simple to manage and pleasant to use. It is intended to provide a navigable interface to the health and performance of your network. Its design goals include collecting as much historical data about devices as possible, using as much auto-discovery as possible with little or no manual intervention, and having a very intuitive interface. Observium is not intended to replace an up/down alerting system like Icinga or Nagios, but rather to complement it with an easy to manage, intuitive representation of historical and current performance statistics, configuration visualisation and syslog capture.
  • nikratio / S3QL — Bitbucket – S3QL is a file system that stores all its data online using storage services like Google Storage, Amazon S3, or OpenStack. S3QL effectively provides a hard disk of dynamic, infinite capacity that can be accessed from any computer with internet access running Linux, FreeBSD or OS-X. S3QL is a standard conforming, full featured UNIX file system that is conceptually indistinguishable from any local file system. Furthermore, S3QL has additional features like compression, encryption, data de-duplication, immutable trees and snapshotting which make it especially suitable for online backup and archival. S3QL is designed to favor simplicity and elegance over performance and feature-creep. Care has been taken to make the source code as readable and serviceable as possible. Solid error detection and error handling have been included from the very first line, and S3QL comes with extensive automated test cases for all its components.
  • Secure encrypted backup using duplicity for Linux and Mac – I have been looking for a replacement alternative to Dropbox which I use on my Mac mainly for backups (I rarely use the sharing). The requirements were secure encrypted backup (where I control the keys) and “intelligence” so incremental backups could be performed i.e. not copying everything every time[...]
  • Duplicati – Duplicati is a free backup client that securely stores encrypted, incremental, compressed backups on cloud storage services and remote file servers. It works with Amazon S3, Windows Live SkyDrive, Google Drive (Google Docs), Rackspace Cloud Files or WebDAV, SSH, FTP (and many more).   Duplicati has built-in AES-256 encryption and backups can be signed using GNU Privacy Guard. A built-in scheduler makes sure that backups are always up-to-date. Last but not least, Duplicati provides various options and tweaks like filters, deletion rules, transfer and bandwidth options to run backups for specific purposes. Duplicati is licensed under LGPL and available for Windows and Linux (.NET 2.0+ or Mono required). The Duplicati project was inspired by duplicity. Duplicati and duplicity are similar but not compatible. Duplicati is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Danish, Portugese, Italian, and Chinese.
  • MindTerm SSH Client 3.1.2 Signed Java Applet – Java SSH Client MindTerm SSH is a fully functional SSH client written in Java. This page presents Mindterm in the form of an applet. Please wait for the applet to load, it will load automatically once the archive is downloaded, be patient.

  • Gmvault: gmail backup – Gmvault is a tool for backing up your gmail account and never lose email correspondence. Gmvault is open source and under GNU-AGPL-3.0. [ via http://www.lffl.org/2013/09/gmvault-effettuare-il-backup-e.html ]
  • SSL Checker – SSL Certificate Verify – SSL Checker This SSL Checker will help you diagnose problems with your SSL certificate installation. You can verify the SSL certificate on your web server to make sure it  is correctly installed, valid, trusted and doesn't give any errors to any of your users. To use the SSL Checker, simply enter your server's hostname (must be public) in the box below and click the Check SSL button. If you need an SSL certificate, check out the SSL Wizard.
  • A Gentoo Linux Advanced Reference Architecture – The book "A Gentoo Linux Advanced Reference Architecture" is meant as a resource displaying the powerful features of many free software solutions that are supported on top of Gentoo Linux. It is a deep-dive approach in many aspects related to processes, supportability, maintainability based on Gentoo Linux system deployments. Unlike the existing, per-application documents that exist on the Internet (and which are a valuable resource to get into the gory details of many applications) and the per-distribution guides that provide information on using that particular distribution, this book will focus more on architecturing IT infrastructure for medium-sized enterprises. Smaller enterprises might find the reference architecture here too expensive or large – however, many services described in the book can be slimmed down into a smaller deployment as well.

  • carloslima/dhsnapshot · GitHub – This script was created out of the need to have snapshots-like backups using the DreamHost Backup service, which provides 50GB of space for personal backups but gives very limited access to it's servers. Basically, you have no SSH access, only RSync and SFTP. It can be used to backup any machine: your computer, a server or even a Dreamhost-hosted website. You just need to configure it with the path to backup, your dreamhost backup account and the private key used for authentication and it will create daily backups and keep the last 7 days, 4 weeks and 6 months.
  • palexander/dreamback · GitHub – Dreamback is the easiest way to automate your backups on dreamhost. Dreamhost does not guarantee their backups of your users (though they've saved me with backups before), so it's best to run backups yourself. This is beta quality software. Please report issues if you have them. Using Dreamback is easy: 1) Create a user on dreamhost to manage your backups 2) Log in with your new user 3) gem install dreamback 4) dreamback 5) Answer the questions to setup your automated backup
  • View all MySQL Variables for Pasting into my.cnf – This is really useful for me because I work with dozens of different database servers. The first thing I do is run this command and paste it into the servers /etc/my.cnf file. That way I will always know the original value and it just makes life much easier.
  • How Permissions Work – Permissions are a key component of the Windows Server 2003 security architecture that you can use to manage the process of authorizing users, groups, and computers to access objects on a network.
