Juju is a terrific way to get an OpenStack cloud up and running. What about after you've got OpenStack?
Empty clouds are no fun, people need to run services on clouds, like Hadoop, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Jenkins ... the list goes on and on. On top of that your developers are looking for ways to consume your cloud; and they're writing applications that are just as diverse in Python, Rails, Node.js, PHP, and Java and other platforms.
At Ubuntu we're working on solving these problems, how do you manage your cloud at the higher service level? How do you bring the speed of cloud deployments down to your developers so they can leverage the cloud faster?
We've built a tool called Juju that makes deploying services on an OpenStack cloud very simple, and we've got over 110+ services ready to go. This workshop will be a technical overview of how Juju works, and how you can use it to make deploying services in OpenStack simpler for you; we'll also cover how to write your own orchestration scripts (that we call charms) for your self so that you can rapidly deploy your
applications in OpenStack.
