In vCenter Hyperic, an application is an inventory type, configured by an authorized user. An application is a set of selected services, usually running in different servers on multiple platforms, that together fulfill a single business purpose.

Configuring applications enables you to manage your infrastructure from an application - as opposed to a hardware - perspective.
