Ubuntu 14.10 Charms Linux Unicorns

In the Utopic Unicorn, Juju now has the ability to “charm” Hadoop big data deployments, making it easier for server administrators to deploy big data processing and analytics.

Juju isn’t just for deploying Linux-only workloads anymore either: The orchestration system can now deploy Microsoft Windows Server-based workloads, Baker said. “A key part of our strategy is to enable administrators to use Ubuntu tools to manage multiple workloads, irrespective of the operating system,” he said.
