Ubuntu Juju Charms the Cloud

Canonical is set to release Ubuntu 11.10, codenamed the Oneiric Ocelot this week, with a key focus on the cloud.

Among the cloud-focused technology components that are set to debut in the new Linux distribution is something that Canonical is branding as Juju. With Juju, Ubuntu is aiming to deliver a cloud orchestration technology for server admins.

"Juju allows you to define an application as a service and then define relationships between different services," Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical told InternetNews.com.
