A public release of LASIC is now available. 

LASIC is a language that facilitates automated creation, management and termination of systems in a cloud environment.  It allows you to create scripts that describe a system, its components, and the relationship between those components using a declarative syntax. Various verbs can then be applied to the script such as deploy (create a new system), shutdown, or runAction(run some action on components of the system). LASIC currently supports Amazon's cloud environment (AWS) including:

LASIC stands for Language for Automating Systems in the Cloud.  LASIC is open source under the Apache 2.0 license and was written in Scala.

You can download LASIC at http://lasic.googlecode.com/files/lasic-0.2.jar.

To learn how to use LASIC see the users guide.
