To deploy applications using Deployment Manager, you need to create packages and publish them to Deployment Manager Server's package feed. Packages contain database and application data. Deployment Manager deploys NuGet (.nupkg) packages, a ZIP-based file format. You can deploy packages from the web interface.

An application package should contain all of the executables, DLLs, configuration files, installation scripts, and anything else the application needs to run.
