One of the key aspect fundamentally missing from the current Internet infrastructure is an advanced service networking platform and facilities, which take advantage of flexible sharing of available connectivity, computation, and storage resources. This paper aims to explore the architectural co-existence of new and legacy services and networks, via virtualisation of connectivity and computation resources and self-management capabilities, by fully integrating networking with cloud computing in order to create In-Network Clouds. It also presents the designs and experiments with a number of In-Network Clouds platforms, which have the aim to create a flexible environment for autonomic deployment and management of virtual networks and services as experimented with and validated on large-scale testbeds.
