This feature is available in the previous versions as well, and allows us to create containers or objects that can contain a group of virtual machines or other objects in different tiers. This new application object can then be managed as a single object, and have all its health badges and alarms aggregated from the child objects of the group.

For example, we could create a standard 3-tier application with a web app and database tier or we could just have a single-tier application. There is really no limit to how we can configure applications, and it is down to what will best fit the application that you want to monitor.
