In the last years, a multi-host environment, that means, having at our disposal multiple connected devices, had become common in our daily lives. We are inundated with many services and applications with a promise to enhance our daily. However, the opposite occurs. We spend too much time and effort to use the same services in all multi-hosts we own. For dealing with this gap, we propose a model based on some principles of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to achieve Liquid Software concepts. This approach requires a service design with an innovate and a unified interface which can drift between different connected devices and bring us with its behavior and complexities. In this context, based on REST and RESTful principles and constraints we propose an innovate centric-basic architecture to deal with multi-hosts. The CUBE, once finished, will allow that both services and multi-hosts discovery for migration across its system to enhance the usability of all devices owned by the same user.
