Effective use of existing network and IT infrastructure can be achieved by providing combined network and IT resources on-demand as infrastructure services that are capable of supporting complex scientific experiments, technological processes, and collaborative groups of researchers and applications. The paper provides a short overview of the existing standards and technologies and refers to the on-going projects and experiences in developing architectural frameworks and tools for on-demand network and Grid/Cloud services provisioning. The paper proposes the Composable Services Architecture (CSA) that is intended to provide a conceptual and methodological framework for developing dynamically configurable virtualised infrastructure services.
