Traditional virtual scenario management tools (VNUML, NetKit, MLN, etc.) normally consider mono-host deployment (i.e. the entire virtualized scenario deployed in the same physical host). In this paper, the work carried out in the EDIV project, dealing with the development of a multi-host evolution of the Virtual Network User Mode Linux (VNUML) tool, is presented. Following an overview of virtual scenario-based management, the distributed deployment management architecture, detailing the main components, its interfaces and operations, is described. Additionally, details on the actual implementation and the results achieved so far are provided, assessing the feasibility and advantages of the system.
