An Infrastructure Virtualisation SOA for VNO-Based Business Models
Today's networking and storage providers can typically offer a limited range of services to their customers because of their reliance on a small, preferred range of infrastructure technologies. The providers do this in order to deliver effective, well-understood services for their customers and minimise the risk associated with developing solutions from a variety of different technologies. They each deliver a particular solution for their customers. However, from the customers' point of view, the provisioning of innovative, customised services that go beyond the services of a single infrastructure provider is very attractive.
