Sunday, June 23 2013 @ 04:03 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

MongoDB is a high performance, open source, non-relational NoSQL database written in C++. The database does not come with a graphical user administrative interface. Instead, most administration on a cluster can be performed using the mongo shell. This is an interactive JavaScript environment with a complete access to the JavaScript language, and a database interface for MongoDB. However, independent developers have stepped up to the plate to provide some excellent open source graphical interfaces.

Top Free Android SSH Clients Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, June 13 2013 @ 03:33 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

SSH is typically used to log into a remote machine and execute commands. Server administrators find this protocol particularly useful for administering servers remotely. However, there are a wide variety of other uses for SSH. For example, it supports TCP port forwarding whereby an SSH server can secure otherwise insecure protocols, as well as X11 forwarding which offers a secure way to use graphical applications over a network.
