> In certain situations it is desirable to make the selection of the concrete type of a Node Template dependent on the final deployment context. This becomes apparent in selecting scaling/load balancing mechanisms where different clouds might provide varying but suitable implementations of the required functionality or possibly none, requiring the deployment of the components providing this functionality. A ServiceTemplate could represent these functions as well as an actual deployment of an implementation of these functions.
> An abstract type (which never can itself be instantiated) could represent the required functionality. Subtypes could represent concrete implementations. A selection mechanism (based on requirements/capabilities constraints) could be used to determine the final NodeType that should be instantiated. A NodeTemplate with NodeType set to the abstract type could represent this scenario and trigger the necessary selection processing.
