AWS Flow Framework for Ruby for the Simple Workflow Service

The Amazon Simple Workflow Service (SWF) lets you build scalable, event-driven systems that coordinate work across many machines that can be either cloud-based or on-premises.

Using the framework, you can write code in a straightforward way. Flow's pre-built objects and classes will communicate with the Simple Workflow API on your behalf, making it easy for you to run tasks in sequence or in parallel on one or more machines.
