Software Infrastructure (DevOps)

DOS

Disk Operating System is a computer OS that provides a file system for operations with files on the storage disk. It has built-in utilities for working with files on disk (copying, creating, editing, deleting and moving). And the built-in interpreter of the Basic language.

Dovecot

Free mail server developed to work with IMAP and POP3. Works only with Linux/UNIX-like systems. It is designed to be secure, flexible in setting up and to work fast.

Exim

EXperimental Internet Mailer is a message transfer software (agent) for Linux and UNIX operating systems. Exim is distributed under the GPL license, and everyone can freely download it, use it and modify it.

Fedora

A Linux/Unix based operating system (Linux distribution) that sponsored by Red Hat and supported by free software community. The project serves to test new technologies, which are further included in the products of Red Hat and other manufacturers.

Filezilla

A multi language, cross-platform file transport application, consisting of FileZilla Client and FileZilla Server. It supports FTP, SFTP and FTPS transport protocols. Equipped with the ability to drag and drop objects, synchronize the directory and search the remote server. Supports multithreaded downloading of files, as well as resume (if supported by the server) on the Internet connection.

Firewall

A network security system that monitors incoming/outgoing network traffic, decides whether to allow specific traffic or block it due to security rules, it establishes a barrier between a secure internal network and Internet.

FreeBSD

Unix-like operating system, used to power modern servers, desktops, and embedded platforms, it provides networking, performance, security and compatibility features. This network operating system is an ideal platform for building an Internet or Intranet server.

FTP

File Transfer Protocol is a standard network protocol for transmitting files between computers on the Internet, built on a client-server model architecture. FTP is often used to download web pages and other documents from a private development device to an open hosting server.

Ganglia

A scalable, distributed monitoring tool that provides a complete real-time monitoring and execution environment that allows you to track statistics and history (CPU utilization, network) of real-time calculations for each of the observed nodes.

Gateway

Link between two computer programs or systems, hardware router or software for interfacing computer networks using different protocols. The main task of the network gateway is to convert the protocol between networks. The most common gateway is a router.

GNU

A Unix-compatible operating system that uses the Linux kernel. A command line is used to work in this OS, but also a graphical module can be installed for users that don’t work with command line.

Gunicorn

Green Unicorn is a Python Web Server Gateway Interface HTTP Server for UNIX OS. The Gunicorn server is broadly compatible with various web frameworks, simply implemented, light on server resources, and fairly speedy.

HAProxy

High Availability Proxy is a server software to provide high availability and load balancing for TCP and HTTP applications, used to improve the performance of a server environment by distributing the workload across multiple servers.

HP Diagnostics

A monitoring tool used to monitor application on different platforms (Java, .Net, Oracle DB, SQL server, SAP, etc), allows to drill down into the code level to find the exact bottleneck and resolve it.

HTTP

HyperText Transfer Protocol is an application protocol for data tranmission in the form of hypertext documents in the "HTML" format, is currently used to transfer arbitrary data and it is the basis for data transfer for the World Wide Web.

https

A protocol for secure communication over an Internet, it consists of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) within a connection encrypted by Transport Layer Security (TLS). It provides protection from attacks based on listening to a network connection.

Hyper-convergence

A type of infrastructure system with a software-defined architecture, it tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources, frequently used in a data center and by cloud operators.

Icinga

Data management capabilities — snapshots and clones - are built into the distributed file system, and run transparently without affecting performance.

IIS

Internet Information Services is a web server from Microsoft that runs on Windows systems and is used to host websites and other content on the web. IIS supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, POP3, SMTP, NNTP protocols.

IM

Instant Messaging is a type of online communications service that provides real-time text transmission over the Internet through a software application, allows to create a private chat room using text-based communication.

IMAP

Internet Message Access Protocol that is a standard email protocol that stores email messages on a mail server, allows to view and manipulate the messages as locally stored on the end user's computing devices.

IPsec

Internet Protocol Security is a set of protocols to ensure the protection of data transmitted over the Internet Protocol. Allows authentication, checks the integrity and / or encryption of IP packets. IPsec also includes protocols for secure key exchange on the Internet. Basically, the application for the organization of VPN-connections.

iptables

A user space application program, command line utility that allows to configure to set up, maintain, and inspect the Linux kernel firewall tables. With IPTables, administrators can create and modify rules that control the filtering and redirection of packages.

ITIL

IT Infrastructure Library is a library that describes the best methods of organizing the work of units or companies engaged in providing services in the field of information technology. This library describes the entire necessary set of processes to ensure the constant high quality of IT services.

JConsole

A Java graphical monitoring tool used to monitor Java Virtual Machine and Java applications, it complies to the Java Management Extensions specification. JConsole is supplied as part of the Java Development Kit (JDK).
