Juju (formerly known as Ubuntu Ensemble) is an open source
single service orchestration tool that works on public clouds, private
clouds and the micro-clouds on Ubuntu developer workstations. The
tool is developed by Canonical Ltd. It provides easy,
intelligent service orchestration on top of environments such as
OpenStack, Amazon AWS, or bare metal.
Through the use of charms, Juju provides users with an
automated service deployment tool, making it possible to deploy cloud
features in literally minutes.
With this software, developers and administrators can generate
a pre-configured node of any type of cloud-based service according to
best practices. You can use charms unmodified, or easily change and
connect them to fit your needs.
The project initially had a slow start, but is now a leading
cloud management tool.
