At the time I developed it in Java, but after the talk I decided to rebuild it for more generalist use cases and start everything entirely from scratch in node.js.
Outkept allows you to control and monitor a large server cluster, without needing to manually specify which and what servers to monitor/control. Instead you just define which subnets you want to control and then, using SSH, Outkept‘s crawlers will look for servers and what do they support.
Rebuilding it in node.js was awesome, allowing me to tackle my node.js skills and dig more into node’s scene while using a lot ‘earlier adopter’ tech.
Right now Outkept v2 supports everything the old version supported and even more, things are quicker and more fluid. New dashboard connects using shoe (sockjs) and the new system relies entirely in multiple node.js processes.
