Abstract

Following the wide adoption by industry of the cloud computing technologies, we can talk about a second generation of cloud services and products that are currently under design phase. However, it is not yet clear how the third generation of cloud products and services of the next decade will look like, especially at the delivery level of Infrastructure-as-a-Service. In order to answer at least partially to such a challenging question, we initiated a literature overview and two surveys involving the members of a cluster of European research and innovation actions. The results are interpreted in this paper and a set of topics of interest for the third generation are identified.
