Gearman - Application Framework to farm out work to other Machines

  •        0

Gearman provides a generic application framework to farm out work to other machines or processes that are better suited to do the work. It allows you to do work in parallel by doing load balancing. It also supports to call functions between languages. It is the nervous system for how distributed processing communicates. It is fault tolerant.

A Gearman powered application consists of three parts: a client, a worker, and a job server. The client is responsible for creating a job to be run and sending it to a job server. The job server will find a suitable worker that can run the job and forwards the job on. The worker performs the work requested by the client and sends a response to the client through the job server.

Cassandra - Scalable Distributed Database

The Apache Cassandra Project develops a highly scalable second-generation distributed database, bringing together Dynamo's fully distributed design and Bigtable's ColumnFamily-based data model. Cassandra is suitable for applications that can't afford to lose data. Data is automatically replicated to multiple nodes for fault-tolerance.

Zend - PHP application stack

Zend Server is a complete, enterprise-ready Web Application Server for running and managing PHP applications that require a high level of reliability, performance and security. It boosts application performane using byte code optimizer. It provides application stack for PHP application. It also provide support to connect to Java applications.

Celery - Distributed Task Queue

Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well. The execution units, called tasks, are executed concurrently on a single or more worker servers using multiprocessing, Eventlet, or gevent. Tasks can execute asynchronously (in the background) or synchronously (wait until ready).

OpenStack - Software for building Private and Public Clouds

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.

S-Space - A scalable software library for semantic spaces

The S-Space Package is a collection of algorithms for building Semantic Spaces as well as a highly-scalable library for designing new distributional semantics algorithms. Distributional algorithms process text corpora and represent the semantic for words as high dimensional feature vectors.

HBase - Hadoop database

HBase provides support to handle BigTable - billions of rows X millions of columns. It is a scalable, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google's Bigtable and runs on top of HDFS (Hadoop Distributed Filesystem). It features compression, in-memory operation per-column. Data could be replicated between the nodes. HBase is used in Facebook and Twitter.

Hypertable - A high performance, scalable, distributed storage and processing system for structured

Hypertable is based on Google's Bigtable Design, which is a proven scalable design that powers hundreds of Google services. Many of the current scalable NoSQL database offerings are based on a hash table design which means that the data they manage is not kept physically ordered. Hypertable keeps data physically sorted by a primary key and it is well suited for Analytics.

Project-voldemort - A distributed database, Clone of Amazon's Dynamo

Voldemort is a distributed key-value storage system. Data is automatically replicated over multiple servers. Data is automatically partitioned so each server contains only a subset of the total data. Server failure is handled transparently. It is used at LinkedIn for certain high-scalability storage problems where simple functional partitioning is not sufficient.

Infinispan - Key value NOSQL data store and data grid

Infinispan is an extremely scalable, highly available key/value NoSQL datastore and distributed data grid platform. The purpose of Infinispan is to expose a data structure that is highly concurrent, designed ground-up to make the most of modern multi-processor/multi-core architectures while at the same time providing distributed cache capabilities. Infinispan offers enterprise features such as efficient eviction algorithms to control memory usage as well as JTA compatibility.

Ganglia - scalable distributed monitoring system

Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization.
