Enhancing application deployments in today's clouds using virtual middleboxes is challenging due to the lack of network control and the inherent difficult in intelligently scaling middleboxes to cope with application demands. The authors' position is that application and middlebox composition and scaling must occur in concert, and addressing the challenges that arise requires a framework that recognizes middleboxes as first-class entities. In this paper, they present the design, implementation, and evaluation of such a framework, called Stratos that is targeted for immediate deployment over- or under-the-cloud today.
