New project README


#1

The Juju team here at Canonical have been busy thinking about how improve our onboarding process. One of the first items has been the project’s tagline and README. Here is the new page in our GitHub repository:

Juju logo

Simple, secure and stable devops tooling. Juju keeps complexity low and productivity high. Built to manage today’s complex application architectures wherever they are run.

Built for

  • SRE and operations teams
  • Developers
  • Data engineers

Excels at

  • Making your deployment understandable
  • Simplifying post-install operations, such as upgrades, updates and configuration management
  • Managing hybrid-cloud services, whether on Kubernetes, VMs, bare metal or any combination

Why Juju?

Juju increases your productivity and decreases your costs.

  • Increase confidence
    If you have ever put off upgrading something in production because something might break, then consider Juju. Juju allows applications to automatically negotiate their configuration, creating optimal settings dynamically.

  • Reduce complexity
    Microservices have made applications simpler, but operations more complex. Regain your understanding of the whole stack.

  • Strengthen operations knowledge
    Everyone has their in-house expert. Encapsulating their know-how in charms distributes that knowledge throughout the business.

  • Simplify day two and beyond
    Upgrades, provisioning new capacity, applying configuration changes can be subtle and difficult.
    Juju takes responsibility for them, as well as deployment.

  • Maintain portability and repeatability
    Retain control over your deployment and eliminate the need for vendor-specific offerings.
    Your devops tooling should be cloud-agnostic and Kubernetes-aware.
