Canonical aims to make cloud orchestration a breeze with Juju

By Brandon Butler, Network World |  Cloud Computing, Canonical, Juju

OpenStack Executive Director Jonathan Bryce says improving usability of OpenStack is a key area that has seen increased activity in recent months. "People eventually want to deal less with the infrastructure," he says, and just have a way to easily deploy new features within their cloud.

There are similar features available to do this sort of work, most notably Chef, another open source orchestration tool, but its focus is not on a simple and elegant GUI like Juju.

Other third-party apps also aim to ease the deployment process for accessing cloud resources, such as RightScale and enStratus, but those are more portals to control cloud instances rather than architecting the systems, as Juju does.
