I was hoping that someone could shed some light on this for me - what exactly is the function of the "services and applications" piece in failover cluster manager (server 2008)?  

For instance I have a cluster named "CLU30" comprised of two nodes, "APP60" and "APP61" which are active/passive.  APP60 has two services/applications running on it named "APP30A" and "APP30B" each of those services has several cluster resources running within each.  What are the purposes of these services/applications?  Is it just to further compartmentalize resources on a cluster node?

Your help is greatly appreciated.
