BOSH is an open source tool for release engineering, deployment, lifecycle management, and monitoring of distributed systems. See docs.

A release is a versioned collection of configuration properties, configuration templates, start up scripts, source code, binary artifacts, and anything else required to build and deploy software in a reproducible way.

A stemcell is a versioned Operating System image wrapped with IaaS specific packaging.

Typical stemcell contains bare minimum OS skeleton with few common utilities pre-installed, a BOSH Agent and few configuration files to make OS be securely configured by default.

Ubuntu Lucid, CentOS 6.x, and Ruby agent based stemcells are deprecated.
