We recently had the opportunity to speak with Jorge Castro of Canonical and discussed Juju, MaaS, Ubuntu Cloud, and his upcoming presentations and workshop at SCALE 11x
“The Cloud” has made building environments quicker and more dynamic however managing these deployments can still be a challenge. Canonical, the good people who bring us Ubuntu, have created an Open Source project to help with this process called Juju (https://juju.ubuntu.com/). Juju helps you manage your deployments by turning the deployment process itself into a service allowing you to connect several different systems and services in one seamless effort.
You can catch Jorge and learn more about Juju at the Eleventh Annual Southern California Linux Expo, February 22-24, 2013 at the Hilton Los Angeles International Airport.
