High-speed, 3D-friendly, TightVNC-compatible remote desktop software
TurboVNC is a high-performance, enterprise-quality version of VNC based on TightVNC, TigerVNC, and X.org. It contains a variant of Tight encoding that is tuned for maximum performance and compression with 3D applications (VirtualGL), video, and other image-intensive workloads. TurboVNC, in combination with VirtualGL, provides a complete solution for remotely displaying 3D applications with interactive performance. TurboVNC's high-speed encoding methods have been adopted by TigerVNC and libvncserver, and TurboVNC is also compatible with any other TightVNC derivative. TurboVNC forked from TightVNC in 2004 and still covers all of the TightVNC 1.3.x features, but TurboVNC contains numerous feature enhancements and bug fixes relative to TightVNC, and it compresses 3D and video workloads much better than TightVNC while using generally only 5-20% of the CPU time of the latter. Using non-default settings, TurboVNC can also be made to compress 2D workloads as "tightly" as TightVNC.
3D Without Boundaries
VirtualGL redirects 3D commands from a Unix/Linux OpenGL application onto a server-side GPU and converts the rendered 3D images into a video stream with which remote clients can interact to view and control the 3D application in real time.

orchestrator / cluster deployment tool
The Orchestrator server is responsible for distribution and launch of simple apply/rollback shell scripts in a particular order across multiple servers . If for any reason deployment is failing at a particular stage the process will stop and you can rollback any changes done until then. In case you want to deploy your code or just call your preferred DSC client to apply the configuration locally the Orchestrator can be a handy tool. The operation can be started manually or scheduled, depending on your needs. In terms of audit and trace capabilities, the system is collecting all console output of your shell scripts from all servers and saves the logs centrally for review.
SWI Deployment Solution is an open source enterprise computer imaging and software delivery solution. Currently, it is using a combination of DHCP, PXE, TFTP, and a client daemon. It uses udpcast to support multicast, and Partimage to deliver the images.
