  • The Automation web service communicates with Windows Azure Pack and authenticates users.

  • The SQL Server databases store and retrieve runbooks, runbook assets, activities, integration modules, and runbook job information.

  • Runbook workers run the runbooks, and they can be used for load balancing.

  • The management portal in Windows Azure Pack is where you author, debug, and start and stop runbooks.
