UML Deployment Diagram. Design Elements

UML Deployment Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the physical deployment of information generated by the software programs.

The information generated by the software is called “artifact”. The hardware with installed software is called “node”. Thus, UML Deployment Diagram models the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes.

UML Deployment Diagram is intended for visualization of elements and components of the program that exist only on the stage of its runtime. The development of the Deployment Diagram is the last stage of the specification of the software system model.

UML Deployment Diagram represents the nodes as boxes, and the artifacts as rectangles within the boxes. The nodes can have subnodes that are represented as nested boxes. One node on the UML Deployment Diagram can conceptually describe more than one physical node.

There are two types of nodes: device nodes and execution environment nodes.

Device nodes are the computing resources with capability of processing memory and executing of software. An execution environment node (EEN) is a computer system that is located inside a device node.

The other shapes the most used in UML Deployment Diagrams are:

  • Communication path - a line that connect two device nodes and represents communications between them.
  • Package - a file shaped box that groups together all the device nodes.
  • Data Store, Frames, Components UML, and others.

The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM contains 13 vector stencils libraries with 393 interactive shapes that you can use to design your UML diagrams.

To design a Deployment Diagram use the UML Deployment Diagram library.

UML Deployment Diagram library contains 31 shapes:

  • Device node
  • Artifact
  • Component
  • Component 2
  • Deployment specification
  • User
  • Data store

CCTV Network Diagram Software →

The CCTV is the process that carried out using the video cameras for transmitting the signal to the specific location, on the limited set of monitors. We are talking about the video cameras that are used for monitoring on such guarded objects as airports, banks, stores, military objects, etc. CCTV equipment is also used in the industrial installations, for surveillance in the public places, for recording the video on the digital video recorders.CCTV Network Diagram Software *

Value Stream Mapping Symbols →

VSM symbols are the best for a production process designing. The entire Value Stream Mapping method uses a graphical representation of the manufacturing process, factors' pros and cons, that all stakeholders can easily understand. Value Stream Mapping is a graphical technique that provides possibilities to improve analysis of a manufacturing process, at the stage of the transferring information or materials that required to deliver a product or service to the customer.Value Stream Mapping Symbols *

Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples →

A list of parameters on which networks differ is very long. A large network with a range up to 50 kilometers is called metropolitan area network (MAN), and this type of network can include several local area networks. Metropolitan networks in their turn connect into global area networks. Here you will see a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). This is an extensive network which occupies a large territory including a few buildings or even the whole city. The space of the MAN is bigger than LAN, but lower than WAN. MAN comprise a lot of communication equipment and delivers the Internet connection to the LANs in the city area. Computer and Networks solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a set of libraries with ready-to-use vector objects to design various kinds of computer networks.Metropolitan area networks (MAN).

Point to Point Network Topology →

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. This sample shows the Point-to-point network topology. Network topology is the topological structure of the computer network. Point-to-point network topology is a simple topology that displays the network of exactly two hosts (computers, servers, switches or routers) connected with a cable. Point-to-point topology is widely used in the computer networking and computer architecture.Point to Point Network Topology
