Juju is apt-get for the cloud. Think of it as installing things onto a group of machines instead of one machine, and having them all automatically configure and talk to each other at the service level. Juju runs on HP Cloud, Amazon Web Services, OpenStack based private clouds, or on raw bare metal via MAAS
With Juju, different authors are able to create service charms independently, and make those services coordinate their communication through a simple protocol. Users can then take the product of different authors and very comfortably deploy those services in an environment. The result is multiple machines and components transparently collaborating towards providing the requested service.
