When service providers move to IAAS Clouds, whether their service is delivered by a legacy application, either it has been developed by a deployable open platform, the provisioning and the management workflow of the computing infrastructure really changes. Here we describe a set of tools which can be used to orchestrate agents’ based services, which provide facilities for provisioning, management and monitoring of Clouds. The user is able to discover, allocate, configure and monitor Cloud services at infrastructure level through an approach that is agnostic respect to the specific Cloud vendor or to the Cloud technology.
