Encapsulating an application in a temporary VirtaMove container makes the application portable, because a container is essentially a directory of files that the VirtaMove runtime interprets. This makes it easy to provision additional cloud instances and to rehost a VirtaMove-prepared application. Scaling out a web-serving tier, for example, is as easy as provisioning new instances and makes it easy to spawn the hosting of the VirtaMove container multiple times.
