Capistrano 3.2.1

An open source tool for running scripts on multiple servers at the same time, a powerful server automation framework coded in Ruby
Currently, Capistrano is considered as one of the easiest ways of deploying a project on a multitude of server environments via SSH.

Capistrano is mainly used in deploying a script to more than one server, and it can be used in automating tasks, creating clone installation, setting up test environments, etc..

Even if Capistrano is written in Ruby, it can be used to deploy and execute scripts written in any other programming language, the only criteria being the presence of a proper interpreter/compiler on the targeted machine.

It works by allowing developers to execute commands in parallel on multiple servers at the same time, a feature incredibly useful if administrating a very large computer or server network.

Capistrano comes with support for frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Bundler, and RVM; and can also be used with C-Ruby, YARV, and JRuby.
