Technology (or Infrastructure Function) a behavior element that groups infrastructural behavior that can be performed by a node. The Infrastructure Function refers to the internal behavior of a node. A Database node performs database-like functions (i.e. transaction management), which are exposed through the Infrastructure service.

The Technology Function refers to the internal behavior of a node. A Database node performs database-like functions (i.e. transaction management), which are exposed through the Technology service.
Technology Service is an externally visible unit of functionality, provided by one or more nodes, exposed through well-defined interfaces, and meaningful to the environment. Technology Services represent the functionality of a node to its environment, which is exposed by its interface. Examples are messaging, storing, naming and directory services. Should be named as a verb, possibly with the word “service” included in it.
