LASIC (Language for Automating Systems in the Cloud) is a free and open-source language which facilitates the creation and management of systems in a cloud environment.
LASIC enables users to create scripts that describe a system, its components, and the relationship between those components using a declarative syntax.
You can then apply various verbs to the script such as deploy (create a new system), shutdown, or runAction(run some action on components of the system).
At the moment, LASIC supports Amazon's cloud environment (AWS).
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the LASIC utility on your Mac are available HERE.
LASIC is a cross-platform utility capable of running on any operating system that comes with Java support (e.g. Mac OS X, Windows, Linux).
