A Node represents a computational or physical resource that hosts, manipulates, or interacts with other computational or physical resources.

Nodes are elements that perform technology behaviour and execute, store, and process technology objects such as Artifacts. For instance, Nodes are used to model application platforms.

Nodes can be interconnected by Paths. A node may be assigned to an Artifact to model that the Artifact is deployed on the Node.

The name of a Node should preferably be a noun. A node may consist of sub-nodes.
