Webopedia Term of the Day: What is Juju?

Juju is an “automatic service orchestration” project launched by Canonical, developers of the Ubuntu Linux-based operating system, to deploy, manage and scale software and interconnected services across one or more Ubuntu servers and cloud platforms.

Juju is designed to work with Canonical’s metal-as-a-service (MAAS) to help streamline the process of deploying and managing resources and services in hyperscale computing environments such as big data workloads and cloud services.
