A SlapOS cloud is composed of two components -- a SlapOS master and multiple SlapOS nodes. The SlapOS master is a representational state transfer (REST) web service that stores node configurations and assigns tasks to execute. The SlapOS nodes provide the actual computing resources required for the service.
