What is Deployment Diagram?

A Deployment Diagram shows the configuration of run-time processing elements and the software components, processes, and objects. It is often used to model software component instances represent run-time manifestations of code units and capture only components that exist as run-time entities. A deployment diagram shows the system's hardware, the software installed on that hardware, and the middleware that connects the disparate machines together. Thus, deployment diagrams show the physical configurations of software and hardware.

Why Deployment Diagram?

A deployment diagram focuses on the configuration of the runtime processing nodes and their components and artifacts, you can use this type of diagram to assess the implications of distribution and resource allocations. A deployment diagram is often used for visualizing, specifying, and documenting the following form of systems:

  • Distributed systems that have multiple servers and can host multiple versions of software artifacts, some of which might even migrate from node to node
  • Embedded systems controlled by external stimuli; i.e., a display that is controlled by temperature change
  • Client/server systems that typically distinguish between the user interface and the persistent data of a system
