Ensemble is an exciting new cloud technology innovated by Ubuntu. If you’re curious what it does (I bet you are) it is a service orchestration framework with focus on rapid cloud deployment. That is to say, it allows one to rapidly deploy cloud instances, bootstrap them, install software on them, configure them as well as link them all together to provide you (as a sys-admin or DevOp) with an end-user facing high-level “service” (Load Balanced CMS with sharded Database, Multinode email service installation…etc). Ensemble has been compared to being APT for the cloud! Now does that sound interesting, it sure is if you ask me! Welcome to next generation Linux infrastructure automation.
I am happy to announce the Ensemble team is running a weekly IRC community meeting. The meeting is scheduled every Wed at 18:00-UTC. For the sharp-eyed among us, yes that is the same time as the old community meeting as they have been merged together. Ensemble will be the main part of that weekly cloud meeting, but it’s not exclusive! All Ubuntu Cloud Community members are very welcome to join in and share the love.
Ubuntu Cloud Community Meeting
WHEN: Weekly on Wednesdays at 6pm UTC
