By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- According to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews journalists, a patent application by the inventors Malhotra, Sameer (Short Hills, NJ); Chuah, Jooi-Teong (East Brunswick, NJ); Parsacala, Nazario (Piscataway, NJ); Hettiarachchi, Kanishka (Hoboken, NJ); Kurup, Rejith (Morganville, NJ), filed on October 29, 2012, was made available online on May 8, 2014.

The assignee for this patent application is Bank Of America Corporation.

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Applications have been developed to perform tasks using software programs. A server may be a physical computer running to serve the requests of at least one other program. Deploying of applications and setting up servers can be intensive of time and resources of information technology staff. In view of such issues, improvements in deployment and management of application lifecycle are needed."

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent application, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "The following presents a simplified summary in order to provide a basic understanding of some aspects of the disclosure. The summary is not an extensive overview of the disclosure. It is neither intended to identify key or critical elements of the disclosure nor to delineate the scope of the disclosure. The following summary merely presents some concepts of the disclosure in a simplified form as a prelude to the description below.

"In some aspects, apparatuses, computer readable media, methods, and systems are described for automatic deployment of applications and infrastructure components, which may include processing a selection of an operating system. A selection of a stack may be processed. A stencil based on the operating system and the stack may be created. The created stencil may then be published.

"In some additional aspects, apparatuses, computer readable media, methods, and systems are described for automatic deployment of applications and infrastructure components, which may include processing selection of an operating system. An element may be generated that includes a selection of one of a plurality of types. A selection for a stack comprising the element may be processed. A stencil may be created based on the operating system and the stack. The created stencil may then be published.

"Aspects of the embodiments may be provided in at least one non-transitory computer-readable medium and/or memory storing computer-executable instructions that, when executed by at least one processor, cause a computer or other apparatus to perform one or more of the process steps described herein.
