Apache Whirr is a set of libraries for running cloud services. Whirr provides:
- A cloud-neutral way to run services. You don't have to worry about the idiosyncrasies of each provider.
- A common service API. The details of provisioning are particular to the service.
- Smart defaults for services. You can get a properly configured system running quickly, while still being able to override settings as needed.
You can also use Whirr as a command line tool for deploying clusters.
