In the video, Bill Morein uses an updated version of System Center Virtual Machine Manager, which allows applications to be stored in the VMM library as well as regular VHDs etc.  He clicks on a running VM, and selects ‘Deploy Application’ and chooses the right app from the library. In this example, he deploys an Enterprise Search application, so we’re not talking Office, or Adobe Reader here. Bill shows that the app is now running in the VM, and in all honesty, it’s pretty seamless and very cool.  There’s more stuff in the video, and it’s definitely worth watching.  It won’t be here for a good while, but it’ll cause big ripples in the traditional way you deploy server applications in your infrastructure of the future.
