Anatomy of a Server

Table of Contents

Let's take a closer look at a Server.   It's helpful to understand where a Server gets all of its cloud resources, software installation packages, inputs, etc.   A Server's configuration leverages multiple services from RightScale, the cloud infrastructure, and other web resources to properly configure an instance in the cloud for its intended purpose (MySQL database server, application server, etc.)

For this discussion, a Server is a "RightScale" Server that you've defined using ServerTemplates. 

Below is a diagram that describes a Server that's designed to launch an EC2 Instance.
