In this paper, the authors identify current challenges in the deployment of complex distributed applications on multiple cloud providers and review the state-of-the-art in model-driven cloud software engineering. Challenges include lack of support for heterogeneous cloud providers; limited matchmaking between application requirements and cloud capabilities; lack of meaningful cross-platform cloud resource descriptions; lack of lifecycle management of cloud applications; inadequate cross-layer monitoring and adaptation based on event correlation; and others. In this paper, they propose solutions to these challenges and highlight the expected benefits in the context of a complex distributed application.
