Sequenced Designer

The Designer allows you to design your sequenced services by creating a hierarchy of service components. A service component is an element of a service design. A service component has a component type that constrains its allowed children and assignable resource offerings.

An example hierarchy of service components, as shown below, has a service composite that contains an infrastructure service, which contains a server group and a virtual network. Also, the server group contains a server (marked as a pattern), while the virtual network contains a policy enforcement point.

For more information, see Sequenced Designs.
