A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11973850B2) outlines a method for deploying a cloud environment efficiently. The method involves retrieving user data related to the cloud environment through a user interface, storing this data in a configuration management database, and generating installation data for software components and network hosts. The generated data includes randomly generated information such as IP addresses and hostnames. The method further includes deploying software components in a specific sequence, starting with components that are essential for other components to function properly. Each software component is installed, configured, and deployment data is stored in the configuration management database for future reference.

Additionally, the method involves hardware discovery on the network before generating data related to network hosts, grouping software components into deployment groups, and selecting components based on user data to create a global configuration of the cloud environment. The user data can include information about location, subnet, network services, hardware, and security. The deployment process is orchestrated by an orchestrator module, and the user data is validated to ensure compliance with predefined rules. After deployment, the cloud environment is tested to verify adherence to these rules. The method can be executed using a deployment system comprising user interfaces, a configuration management database, orchestrator modules, and processors for generating data, retrieving component data, deploying software components, validating user data, and selecting software components based on user data.
