The best description you can find, is probably what's on that page :) 
You'll really understand it, once you write your first formula. The docs 
have a couple of good tutorials as well. Right now, Ensemble works 
really well on Amazon's ec2 (which offers a free micro tier that you can 
play with). However, a lot of work is going into enabling us to use it 
on a local machine (lxc containers) .. that is not quite ready however
