Torque Framework Concepts#

Torque Framework for Cloud System Management enables abstraction of cloud system management from cloud deployment configuration by operating on two distinct layers: Design Layer and Deployment Layer.

There are two reasons for separating design from deployment:

  1. We want to design our systems without being restricted by reconfigurations of development and deployment environments. That means we can evolve and rearchitect our system with the speed of the CLI tool.

  2. We want to be able to map these abstract designs to any custom deployment so we can easily materialize our cloud systems in different environments and for different purposes. Being development environments or cloud deployments, the configuration of a particular deployment is separated from the design.

Read next how Design Layer and Deployment Layer are structured internally.
