The Marionette Collective (mcollective) is a framework to build server orchestration or parallel job execution systems. It uses modern technologies and concepts that make it ideal for large and cloud-based infrastructures. It's specifically geared towards systems administration tasks, but can be seen as a generic framework too.
Xenograte Community Toolkit is based on Xenograte, a platform which enables users to manage and orchestrate worker processes, and easily design the flow of data shared among them. Xenograte works either on one server or across multiple servers/clouds. The Toolkit provides a CLI and other resources for building, testing, and debugging worker processes, in Ruby, on a single machine. You can then easily weave these worker processes together into powerful integrations or automations.
