Canonical, the Ubuntu Linux and Juju Development/Operations (DevOps) program parent company, is turning Juju into a tool that makes setting clouds up a drag-and-drop operation.

No, they're not kidding. As Sally Radwan, Canonical's cloud product marketing manager, recently explained, "A few years ago, the cloud team at Canonical decided that the future of cloud computing lies not only in what clouds are built on, but what runs on it, and how quickly, securely, and efficiently those services can be managed.

Juju’s GUI simplifies searching, dragging and dropping a ‘Charm’ into a canvas to deploy services instantly."
