OfflineIMAP is a tool to simplify email reading. It allows you to read the same mailbox from multiple computers and ensures that your changes will be automatically reflected on all computers. You can use various mail clients to read a single box or read mail while offline with full synchronization when you reconnect. You can read IMAP mail with readers that lack IMAP support (same goes for SSL). OfflineIMAP's multithreaded synchronization algorithm performs between 10 and 60 times faster than many mail readers' internal IMAP support, and it can be used even with mail readers that support IMAP already. There are five available user interface modules, including scripted execution, an interactive terminal interface, and GUI interfaces.
Simple Groupware is a complete enterprise application offering email, calendaring, contacts, tasks, document management, synchronization with cell phones and Outlook, full-text search, and much more. Simple Groupware combines standards like RSS, iCalendar, vCard, IMAP, POP3, SMTP, CIFS, CSV, WebDAV, LDAP, and SyncML under one platform. Unlike other groupware software, Simple Groupware contains the programming language sgsML to enable the quick customization and creation of powerful Web applications.
Address Book Server allows you to share your contacts and calendar events with others connected to your network or over the Internet. Each participant synchronizes their contacts with the server hosted on your own system. Address Book Server supports the full Address Book and iCal schema. The server also provides a friendly Web interface and an iPhone client which let you access your contact details remotely.
SymmetricDS is Web-enabled, database independent, data synchronization/replication software. It uses Web and database technologies to replicate tables between relational databases in near real time. The software was designed to scale for a large number of databases, work across low-bandwidth connections, and withstand periods of network outage. It includes support for Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, H2, HSQLDB, Derby, MS SQL Server, Firebird, IBM DB2, Informix, Interbase, and Greenplum databases.
Ldap Synchronization Connector reads from any data source including databases, LDAP directories, or files and transforms and compares this data to an LDAP directory. These connectors can then be used to continuously synchronize a data source to a directory, for a one shot import, or to compare differences by outputting CSV or LDIF format reports. It offers a powerful transformation engine based on a scripting language to easily manipulate data on the fly. Various identity management functions are included for directory-specific compatibility - most notably Active Directory (changing passwords, account status, last logon, etc.).
csync is a bidirectional file synchronizer for Linux. It allows the user to keep two copies of files and directories in sync. It uses uses widely adopted protocols like SMB or SFTP so that there is no need for a server component of csync. It is a user-level program which means there is no need to be a superuser. With pam_csync, it is possible to create roaming home directories.
GNU usbsync is console-based utility that assists you in keeping files and entire directory trees synchronized between a portable storage volume (such as a USB flash or thumb drive) and arbitrarily many hosts. For this purpose, a special text file, usually named .usbsync, is placed in a storage volume's top-level directory to contain user-written synchronization entries.
PYBAG implements a portable bag and is intended for fast synchronization and backup. It lets you use a portable digital storage device to carry your electronic documents similar to the way you can use a bag to carry paper documents. You can synchronize the bag with your original files easily. If a synchronization conflict occurs, it will be reported. You can specify rules for automatic conflict resolution. With PYBAG, you can backup files and synchronize any changes made to the original files with the bag. The synchronization process will only copy changed files. The program is cross-platform and independent from the OS and filesystem. You may easily synchronize files between Windows and Linux, for example. Symbolic links are supported on all systems (if the OS or filesystem does not support symlinks, then they are emulated). This program has a GUI and a command line interface.
