These are free software replacements for Service as a Software Substitutes (which are sometimes also referred to as web services or network services).

On the Internet, proprietary software isn't the only way to lose your freedom. Service as a Software Substitute, or SaaSS, is another way to let someone else have power over your computing.
SaaSS means using a service implemented by someone else as a substitute for running your copy of a program. The term is ours; articles and ads won't use it, and they won't tell you whether a service is SaaSS. Instead they will probably use the vague and distracting term “cloud”, which lumps SaaSS together with various other practices, some abusive and some ok. With the explanation and examples in this page, you can tell whether a service is SaaSS.
Who Does the Server Really Serve


Media publishing platforms

GNU MediaGoblin
MediaGoblin is a free software media publishing platform that anyone can run. You can think of it as a decentralized alternative to Flickr, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc.


Static Source Code Analyzers

Adlint
It can point out insecure or nonportable code fragments, and can measure various quality metrics of the source code. It (currently) can analyze source code compliant with ANSI C89 / ISO C90 and partly ISO C99.

When used in conjunction with other free software, this could serve as the beginnings of a replacement for Coverity Scan


Piwik
A suitable replacement for Google Analytics, for analyzing web user traffic on your website. Supports integration with popular web revision systems.
