Rudy 0.9.1 BETA - Not your grandparents' EC2 development and
deployment tool

Rudy is a development and deployment tool for Amazon EC2. It helps you
build and maintain infrastructures in by organizing them into groups
of zones, environments, and roles. By making it quick and easy to
build infrastructures, Rudy makes it feasible to run environments only
for the time that you need them.
