A VMware vApp is a collection of pre-configured virtual machines (VMs) that combine applications with the operating systems that they require.
VApps allow disparate VMs to work together in a stack as an application, and support cloud computing architectures. Administrators can nest vApps within vApps, set up VMware resource pools and deploy new vApps based on existing ones.
