bowery.io – limitless development environment

Bowery is a limitless development environment available at http://bowery.io/.It is free for DEVELOPERS and STARTUPS. All you need to do is configure one simple file per host. With a few lines bowery is setting up a host inkl. your app, the dependencies (like redis, mongodb,..) and up you go. Your app will be online in a short time inkl. ssh access to the VM.

PS: Signup is done via the CLI. I think this is a trend 😉

Packer.IO

Quote:

Packer is easy to use and automates the creation of any type of machine image.

packer.io seems to be a very nice and slim tool to do provisioning of VMs for different cloud solution providers. You can also test your VMs locally via VirtualBox or VMWare.
