The demand for new and innovative services, and especially for personalized services, continues to increase. In such systems, different services may compete for the same set of shared resources. Hence, the mix of services and resources that each has often results in conflicting demands on shared resources, and is becoming increasingly difficult to manage. Autonomic systems that provide virtual resources and services can provide important management benefits to ensure that the needs of different services can simultaneously be met. This paper describes the requirements for provisioning and managing virtual resources and services, and extends the DEN-ng information model to architect such systems.
