newEasy as pie. Like taking candy from a baby. A walk in the park. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

You hear those phrases all the time. But how often do you hear them applied to installing server applications in a datacenter? Sure, maybe you have some web app that’s easy to set up, but I’m talking about multi-tier, 300-page-runbook, 17-DVDs-inserted-in-the-correct-order server apps. Applications that take days to install, and help from 11 different vendors to get right.

Our mission is to change that. Microsoft Server Application Virtualization [Server App-V] is designed to dramatically simplify deploying and managing applications in the datacenter. We give you the ability to package an app up and move it around like a single file, with its state kept separate from any machine it runs on so it remains portable. Combine this with System Center Virtual Machine Manager and you have a tool that lets you build out complex services in no time.
