Describing a vApp
Building a vApp
Using a vApp to manage VMs
A vApp gives a new object in the inventory and provides a container for managing multiple VMs as a unit so you can deal with multiple applications in a single-tiered unit, which makes for greater efficiency and portability. vApps come in two formats: - Open virtualization format

When you create a vApp, there is CPU and memory allocation, which is an aggregate value; you also need to allocate IP.
