Deploy and Undeploy Services in Ops Manager

Ops Manager can be used to deploy and undeploy a service.

Deploy Command in Ops Manager

With the deploy command, a business user can introduce new services to the grid. These can be either stateful services including a Space and data, or stateless services with business logic.
