Using cloud based images, orchestration tools like Ansible, container
technologies like Docker all helps to make application deployment easier.
However, it's still complex compared to copying a single binary and running it.

Modern languages like Rust ( http://www.rust-lang.org/ ) & Go (
http://golang.org/ )
seems to produce statically linked binaries by default.
