Most of the current platforms for cloud infrastructure management are designed to deal mainly with computing and storage resources. However, when deploying highly distributed applications with strict network requirements, such as low delay or bandwidth guarantees, the support for specification and configuration of such requirements still lacks. Moreover, resource allocation strategies and algorithms are usually hard-coded into the cloud platform's core, making it very difficult to improve or adapt these strategies to better fit individual application and environment needs.
