Subject RE: How to Bundle Apps?

Good ideas so far!

As jclouds supports cloudstack, tools that work on cloudstack do, too.

Pallet, for example, supports what you mention, inc MySQL (github/pallet),
and it is an OSS tool.

enStratus is a service and has functionality inc what you mention, and this
also supports cloudstack.  Scalr also supports cloudstack, and is either a
service, or you can install it (OSS).

The fact you mention DB setup actually cuts out a lot of other good tools!

Hope it helps!
