Deliver Applications for Private, Public and Hybrid Clouds
Package existing or new applications into vApps, which can be deployed in private, public and hybrid clouds. vApps are pre-built software solutions optimized for the cloud, consisting of multiple virtual machines that are bundled and maintained as a single entity. vApps are built using the industry-standard Open Virtualization Format (OVF) for packaging and distributing software, and simplify the process of deploying applications into cloud environments.
Service providers can also include vApps as part of their service catalogs through their vCloud-powered public cloud services. vCloud-powered is a service badge for any service based on VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud Director that makes available the full vCloud API and supports OVF VM file format upload/download.
