9 Excellent Open Source Configuration Management Applications
This software automates the configuration of machines to a particular state. Like any other tools, they are designed to solve specific problems in certain ways. The goal is to get a system from whatever state it is in, into the desired state. Configuration management software are the tools of choice for many system administrators and devops professionals.

It was developed by the Open Software Foundation (now, The Open Group) out of several distributed computing technologies from several sources.
  • FreeHA
    FreeHA is a free, portable, easy to use (compared to alternatives) program to run nodes in a 'High Availability' Cluster. Its initial target is to run on any and all UNIXen, rather than any particular one.
  • Growler
    Growler is a component-oriented framework aimed at distributed and collaborative visualization and computational steering. It is released under the NASA Open Source Agreement. Growler's distributed object and event architecture is suitable for application to high-performance LAN environments as well the Internet. Its features include strong integration with C++, selective distributed reference counting, and efficient well-typed event channels for local and remote event broadcast, with support for low-latency/low-perturbation events via a loss-tolerant "state-based" event model. There is also support for event transmission over Infiniband, and event sizes greater that 4 gigabytes.
  • HA-Tools
    The HA-Tools provide some programs to improve shell scripting, especially in a High Availability environment. The halockrun program provides a simple and reliable way to implement locking in shell scripts (a typical usage for halockrun is to prevent cronjobs to run simultanously), and the hatimerun program provides a time-out mechanism.
  • Heketi
    Heketi provides a RESTful management interface which can be used to manage the life cycle of GlusterFS volumes. With Heketi, cloud services like OpenStack Manila, Kubernetes, and OpenShift can dynamically provision GlusterFS volumes with any of the supported durability types.
  • Helios
    Helios is a Docker orchestration platform for deploying and managing containers across an entire fleet of servers. Helios provides a HTTP API as well as a command-line client to interact with servers running your containers. It also keeps history of events in your cluster including information such as deploys, restarts and version changes.
  • HPCC
    HPCC (High Performance Computing Cluster) stores and processes large quantities of data, processing billions of records per second using massive parallel processing technology.
  • ifmetric
    ifmetric is for setting the metrics of all IPv4 routes attached to a given network interface at once. This may be used to change the priority of routing IPv4 traffic over the interface. Lower metrics correlate with higher priorities.
  • JumboMem
    JumboMem gives unmodified binaries transparent access to memory spread across multiple computers. The goal is to improve the performance of memory-hungry applications by replacing accesses to a slow paging device (a disk) with accesses to fast RAM located across a high-speed network. Unlike other memory servers, JumboMem does not need administrator privileges either to install or run.
  • kube-applier
    kube-applier is a service that enables continuous deployment of Kubernetes objects by applying declarative configuration files from a Git repository to a Kubernetes cluster.
  • kubeadm-dind-cluster
    kubeadm-dind-cluster is a Kubernetes multi-node cluster for developer of Kubernetes and projects that extend Kubernetes. Based on kubeadm and DIND (Docker in Docker).
  • kubectx
    kubectx is a a tool to switch between Kubernetes contexts.
  • Kubernetes
    Kubernetes is an open source implementation of container cluster management.
  • kubernetes-ec2-autoscaler
    kubernetes-ec2-autoscaler is a node-level autoscaler for Kubernetes on AWS EC2 that is designed for batch jobs.
  • kubetop
    kubetop is a top-like tool for Kubernetes.
    MP-MPICH is a Multi-platform uniform MPI implementation, based on MPICH and SCI-MPICH, resulting in a high performance, consistent MPI across both ethernet and SCI networks in a hybrid environment.
  • Oscar
    Open Source Cluster Application Resource: a snapshot of the best known methods for building, programming, and using clusters. It consists of a fully integrated and easy to install software bundle designed for high performance cluster computing
  • paexec
    paexec distributes performing the given tasks (stdin) across several CPUs or machines in a network.
  • popsneakerconfig
    popsneakerconfig allows you to comfortably manage the configuration file popsneakerrc. It allows you to create rules with a wizard, and can optimize your rules and highlight invalid rules.
  • PRUN
    PRUN: Parallel task executor and job scheduler in a high-availability computing clusters.
  • Riverdrums Load Balancer
    The Riverdrums Load Balancer is a no-frills, event-driven load balancer aimed at clarity and efficiency.
  • Skylable Sx
    Skylable Sx is a reliable, fully distributed cluster solution for your data storage needs. With Sx you can aggregate the disk space available on multiple servers and merge it into a single storage system.
  • slurm
    SLURM is an open-source resource manager designed for Linux clusters of all sizes. It provides three key functions. First it allocates exclusive and/or non-exclusive access to resources (computer nodes) to users for some duration of time so they can perform work. Second, it provides a framework for starting, executing, and monitoring work (typically a parallel job) on a set of allocated nodes. Finally, it arbitrates conflicting requests for resources by managing a queue of pending work.
  • Son of Grid Engine
    Son of Grid Engine is a highly-scalable and versatile distributed resource manager for scheduling batch or interactive jobs on clusters or desktop farms.
  • Sonobuoy

  • Vastsky
    Vastsky is a Linux-based cluster storage system that provides logical volumes (Linux block devices) to users by aggregating disks over a network.
  • VCL
    VirtualCL (VCL) cluster platform is a wrapper for OpenCL that allows most unmodified applications to transparently utilize multiple OpenCL devices in a cluster as if all the devices are on the local computer.
  • Warewulf
    Warewulf is a distribution of tools that are designed to aid in the implementation of Beowulf style clusters. Presently the largest component is the slave node builder.
