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
- Component 2
- Deployment specification
- Data store
- Communication path
- Communication line
- Association Many-to-Many
- Association One-to-Many
- Frame, fragment
- Interface with connector
- Processor node
- Execution environment node
- Smart connector
- Line connector
- Provided interface
- Provided interface (reverse)
- Required interface
- Required interface (reverse)

ConceptDraw Rapid UML solution provides UML Deployment Diagram library of vector stencils for drawing the deployment diagrams using deployment blocks and assembly connectors.
Use design element from the UML Deployment Diagram library to draw your own UML deployment diagrams of complex systems and software applications.
This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Deployment Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Explaining offensive strategies of American Football is practically impossible without drawing a diagram. If you need to do this more than once you have to choose an appropriate tool allows you to change diagrams easily. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with the Football Solution is the best choice for this case.

Architectural drawing allows to show the location of a building or ensemble of buildings on the ground, indicating the cardinal points. For centuries, people had been studying architecture in universities to learn how to draw building plans and now everyone can do it easily just using appropriate software. While developing the building plan, its graphic part, you can display the part of the floor or the entire floor of a building with an indication of the exact location of the drawn premise.
Small-sized apartments does not restrict the advanced interior design opportunities. Here is a detailed and precise floor plan of a pretty small apartment. A furniture objects are added to show possible interior of this home. This plan can be used to help somebody with a floor layout and furniture arrangement. Having this floor plan in a pocket while shopping would be useful to check if there is enough rooms for a new furniture.

Visual information is easier to perceive. You can teach even a child to make diagrams with a good flowchart example that would be interesting for it. Flowcharts can be fun, it’s not about business processes or programming algorithms.
This flowchart shows step by step process of manufacturing of Nixtamal The product which is obtained by processing maize with calcium hydroxide. We must assume that the Aztecs were very fond of this product, if the recipe of its production came to our times. This flow chart was designed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with its solution for designing flowcharts of various types, sizes and purposes. ConceptDraw Flowcharts solution consists from the library of flowchart symbols, containing the set vector objects. Also there are a lot of diverse templates and samples of flow charts.

The Internet is a giant computer network which connects computers all over the world. It is integral part of human society and business. But the serious question for network engineers, designers, lawmakers and enforcers is the need for protect the Internet networks from the Internet crimes, hacking and attacks. There are quite a number of hardware, software and physical methods of protection against them.
The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the tools of Network Security Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software. They show protection networks with Firewalls and other network security devices.
