fuel-web (nailgun) implements REST API and deployment data management. It manages disk volumes configuration data, networks configuration data and any other environment specific data which are necessary for successful deployment. It has required orchestration logic to build instructions for provisioning and deployment in a right order. Nailgun uses SQL database to store its data and AMQP service to interact with workers.
