Application Overview

In Wayfinder, Applications are a way to model the elements of your applications (containers, cloud resources, environments, etc) to simplify deployment and provisioning. Applications should consist of things that follow the same software lifecycle and would typically be deployed together, although individual components can be deployed separately.
