Both component and Deployment Diagrams depict the physical architecture of a computer-based system.
Deployment Diagrams are made up of a graph of nodes connected by communication associations to show the physical configuration of the software and hardware.
Components are physical units of packaging in software, including:
The physical hardware is made up of nodes. Each component belongs on a node. Components are shown as rectangles with two tabs at the upper left.
Following is a Deployment Diagram that shows the relationships of software and hardware components for a real estate transaction.
