SmartFrog is a distributed deployment system. It allows developers, architects and operations teams to describe the deployment of different parts ("components") of a server-side configuration, then take this description and deploy it across multiple servers. Every host runs a small SmartFrog daemon which can deploy and manage part of the overall distributed system.
Deployed components (and systems built from them) can be started, stopped and "pinged" for health...some components can apply failure handling and workflow to deployments, enabling the "deployment descriptor" to even include failure handling logic"
SmartFrog was developed at HP Labs in Bristol, in the UK.
