Service Orchestration with Juju

Juju is a new open source configuration management tool for deploying
services into cloud and data center environments.

Juju provides its users a higher level semantic of service level management
rather than machine management.  By modeling the relationships between
services as first-class-entities, Juju is able to provide real reuse of
service definitions in much the same way that package management allows
deployment and reuse of software bits in many different context.  Juju's
goal is to be the apt of the clouds.  By providing higher level
service-oriented semantics and reusable building blocks to end users, juju
aims to be a preferred solution for deploying services to the cloud.

Juju relies on Zookeeper for distributed coordination and state management
of the managed machines and services.  However while being a state based
system, it exports an event oriented api to user defined service
definitions.  Part of juju's appeal is that you can write these event
handlers and service definitions in any language using any preferred tools.

Juju also incorporates resource provisioning, and can deploy service
definitions seamlessly from lxc containers on laptops, to physical
server-class machines, and cloud environments like AWS/EC2 and Openstack.
