In this webinar we discuss how open-source technologies in general, and Ubuntu Cloud in particular, can help companies avoid frustrating vendor lock-in and stay in control of their own cloud destinies. We will also explore Ubuntu’s unique attributes, looking at how it minimises hardware and software costs, accelerates cloud deployment, and supports dynamic service provisioning and scaling.
Juju is Devops Distilled
Accelerated provisioning through IAAS has put the spotlight on friction in the deployment, configuration and management of services. This friction can only be overcome via a change in emphasis, from configuring machines to connecting services that can then be scaled independently. In other words, service orchestration. With Juju, services can be deployed, connected, upgraded and re-used by defining them as Juju charms. Encapsulating service intelligence in charms enables you to separate deep service-specific skills from broad operations management skills.
