Welcome to n0r1sk software solutions
We are four crazy guys that decided to spend their spare time on open source projects!
We developed an Open Source Android Battery App - Take a look!
A good movie quote from the "A-Team - The Movie" describes our working quality really good. :) (with a slight modification)
"Give us a minute and we are good, we've got an hour - we are great, give us six month - we are unbeatable"
Do also see this link on how to build your own A-Team of IT.
n0r1sk software solutions are free and open-source, meaning that it is generally acceptable for any company to use and distribute it as long as our license is respected — we do not charge any licensing fees. However, in order to foster a healthy relationship with the n0r1sk team, we ask that interested parties open a line of communication with us. This is only a courtesy of course, but we appreciate knowing where our project is used. We may even be able to help you with your plan!
We also provide the option for companies to become official sponsors (see the donate button on our front page). In addition to the satisfaction of helping the open-source community, sponsors are entitled to some special perks as well. We strongly encourage anyone using n0r1sk software solutions as part of their business model to sponsor us in some way, though you are welcome to keep the details private if you wish.
If you would like to discuss your project in more depth, please contact us and describe the project and its scope as much as possible. We are always happy to work with companies who wish to include us in their projects.
NANTAN is the native american Apache word for "chief". Take a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cochise
We took this name for our software because it is the "chief" of lots of "indians" (resources: e.g. server, hosts, modems)!
It is a web based software to control an environment with many server ("Resources"). Simple plain scripts are used as so called "Activities" that are running on one or multiple "Resources". Next to "Tags" to organize your objects you may group your "Resources" in Organizational Units "OU"s. Even some "Templates" holding resource specific "Activities" are included. User based views and a "Scheduler" are in the pipe.
Having this, everyone who is capable of writing scripts (simple or complex, bash/perl/python/php/...) will be able to manage NANTAN. But even better, NANTAN gives you the power to bundle multiple activities on several resources to a simple click. For sys-admins and those who don't have to bear the burden of knowing the admin password.
But keep in mind, NANTAN is simple but powerfull! There are no complex layers between you (your scripts) and your systems. So if you make a mistake, there is nothing that will protect you to make!
Like at sudo:
- Think before you type.
- With great power comes great responsibility.
Once again, think before you type - use your brain and pay attention on what goes on in your scripts!
NANTAN is definitely not a super duper magic marble that knows what you like to do before you know it. It isn't a great "click, click, click" software which is used by non technicians.
BUT: It currently IS a rough bare metal software that provides great power, but needs instinctive feelings and some system experience (especially for your environment) to control.
Here is a brainstorming-log of one of our first brainstormings on this project! -> NANTAN first brainstorming (sorry, in german)
