Document Sets were introduced in SharePoint 2010 and provide a broad range of capabilities to manage content. They allow the grouping of related content into a single entity. The content that is contained within a Document Set can be treated as an atomic unit or as part of a larger set of documents that can be treated consistently.

In SharePoint 2010 you can create your own custom content type.
A document set can contain documents, workbooks, presentations or videos.
