Deploying Data-Tier Applications of SQL Server 2008 R2

Data-Tier Applications of SQL Server 2008 R2 make database development, deployment and management much easier. When you create a Data Tier Application and build it, it creates a single, self-contained unit of deployment called a DAC package in compressed format that contains SQL Server instance objects that are associated with the database, database objects and deployment intents.
In my last article Creating Data-Tier Applications in SQL Server 2008 R2 I gave you an overview of Data-tier applications, then I talked about how it differs from database projects and finally I showed how you can create a DAC package using Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Studio (SSMS). In this article my focus is to deploy the created DAC package and discuss the different methods of deployment, click here for more detail.
