Serena Release Manager


An environment is a user-defined collection of resources that hosts one or more applications. Environments are typically modeled on some stage of the software project life cycle, such as development, QA, or production. A resource is a deployment target, such as a database or a J2EE container. Resources are usually found on the same host as the agent that manages them is located. A host can be a physical machine, a virtual machine, or be cloud-based.
