‘An Introduction to Juju’
Juju is a service orchestration tool that allows you to deploy a wide range of workloads onto public clouds, private clouds, or bare metal; it’s probably the easiest way to deploy anything from a scalable WordPress blog to a highly-available Openstack cluster. Individual software services are encapsulated into reusable “charms” that define how to deploy and scale the service, and how it can be connected to others; Juju itself is a distributed system responsible for coordinating and connecting these services as directed by the user.
William Reade has spent most of his career writing software for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X, primarily in C, C++, Python, and Go. These days he works for Canonical, as technical lead for the juju-core project, which involves much less actual programming than one might expect.
Linux Professional Institute’s Regional Enablement Initiative’ focuses on identifying the best partner organisations and educational institutes in regions around the globe that are best suited for the task of promoting Linux Professionalism
ICE Malta, a leading ICT institute in the Maltese islands, welcomes local & international students to achieve worldwide recognised certifications by Adobe, Autodesk, LPI, The Digital Marketing Institute, Cisco, Microsoft amongst other prestigious brands.
