Actual state of the art of cloud service design does not deal systematically how to define, deploy and operate cross-platform capable cloud services. By simplifying and harmonizing the use of IaaS cloud infrastructures using lightweight virtualization approaches, the transfer of cloud deployments between varieties of cloud service providers becomes more frictionless. This paper proposes operating system virtualization as an appropriate and already existing abstraction layer on top of public and private IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) infrastructures, and derives reference architecture for lightweight virtualization clusters.
