Is anybody else tired of hearing about the Cloud? Sick of hearing about how its going to change everything and how it can scale infinitely and that it makes the best Belgian waffles you’ve ever had.
Whats missing, the reason you don’t have your waffles yet, is a way to tie it all together in a way that makes sense. We’re still hitting the cloud screw with a server hammer, and wondering why its not very satisfying.
Ensemble is a new model, with an implementation, for service orchestration on top of Ubuntu. Bring up existing best of breed open source technologies, plug your app into them rapidly, and scale easily.
