Application Services simplifies and automates deployments of multitier enterprise applications in hybrid cloud environments.

With Application Services, you can create different deployment profiles for a life cycle, such as development, testing, and production. You can add deployment profiles to a composite deployment profile, bind their properties, and deploy them together and in order. The deployment profile settings are saved in Application Services. You can reuse a saved deployment profile to deploy an application version to a supported cloud environment.

If you update a deployed application, Application Services creates an update profile based on the modified values. This update profile includes an update script generated from the defined update life cycle stage.
