A Deployment diagram shows how and where the system is to be deployed; that is, its execution architecture.
Hardware devices, processors and software execution environments (system Artifacts) are reflected as Nodes, and the internal construction can be depicted by embedding or nesting Nodes. Deployment relationships indicate the deployment of Artifacts, and Manifest relationships reveal the physical implementation of components. As Artifacts are allocated to Nodes to model the system's deployment, the allocation is guided by the use of deployment specifications.
