What would you say if I told you, that you could continuously upload your own Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) web apps into an open source Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) framework, running on top of an open source Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud, deployed on an open source Metal-as-a-Service provisioning system, autonomically managed by an open source Orchestration-Service… right now, today?
“An idea is resilient. Highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it's almost impossible to eradicate.”
|“Now, before you bother telling me it's impossible…”|
|“No, it's perfectly possible. It's just bloody difficult.”|
Perhaps something like this...
“How could I ever acquire enough detail to make them think this is reality?”
|“Don’t you want to take a leap of faith???”|
|Okay, this looks kinda neat, what is it?|
Juju is an open source Orchestration System that deploys and scales complex services across many public clouds, private clouds, and bare metal servers.
MAAS is an open source bare metal provisioning system, providing a cloud-like API to physical servers. Juju can deploy services to MAAS, as well as public and private clouds.
"Ready for the kick?"
If you recall these concepts of nesting cloud technologies...
These are real technologies, which exist today!
“The smallest seed of an idea can grow…”
Oh, and I won't leave you hanging...you're not dreaming!
