Cloning SysAdmins with Juju and The Cloud
It's time to face the music: There's only a couple guys in Ops, and a
lot of infrastructure to set up and it was all due yesterday. If only
you could clone all the sysadmins of the world to get all of their
expertise and know-how in deploying open source applications, you could actually get it done.
Perhaps there is a way: Juju and Charms! Juju encapsulates services in a way that promotes sharing and collaboration the same way packages have done for open source software.
If you are a sysadmin or a developer who is looking to get an
infrastructure of databases, loadbalancers, and webapps up to speed
rapidly, Juju may be interesting. If you are looking into deploying something massively scalable, like OpenStack or Hadoop, Juju is built to handle that task.
Clint Byrum is a member of the Canonical Ubuntu Server Team and a leader of the Juju Charm community. Clint brings years of Ops and Development experience in web environments to the task of making Ubuntu Server and Juju shine.

Factual is in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall on the east side. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.
We recommend you park at the mall. You get 3 hours free and our building is a short easy walk: Exit from the mall parking garage up to ground level, head east, pass the Lens Crafters, and you'll be able to enter the west side of 1801. Then just hit the elevators to go up to floor 14, and Factual is in Suite 1450.
