Current cloud solutions are fraught with problems. They introduce a monolithic cloud stack that imposes vendor lock-in and dont let developers mix and match services freely from diverse cloud service tiers to configure them dynamically to address application needs.

Cloud blueprinting is a novel approach that lets developers syndicate, configure, and deploy virtual service-based application payloads on virtual machine and resource pools in the cloud. Cloud blueprinting helps developers to automatically provision services, effectively manage workload segmentation and portability (i.e., the seamless movement of workloads across many platforms and clouds), and manage virtual service instances, all while optimizing the use of cloud resources and accelerating the deployment of new composed services. Within such a cloud environment, its also important to equip developers with a unified approach that lets them develop cloud applications on top of existing applications at any layer of the cloud stack from multiple cloud providers.
