The application group feature allows you to add resources, such as servers, databases, load balancers, and storage, from different services and regions to the same application group. This allows you to manage resources based on your business requirements. For example, you can manage alert rules and view monitoring data by application group. This greatly improves the operations and maintenance (O&M) efficiency.

Scenario

After you purchase resources of multiple Alibaba Cloud services, you can add resources related to the same business, such as servers, databases, object storage, and caches, to the same application group. Then, you can manage alert rules and view monitoring data by application group, which simplifies management and improves monitoring efficiency.
