Nowadays, Cloud services are not always able to promptly deal with the new emerging customers’ requirements. A possible solution to such a problem consists in developing a piece of middleware able to combine available services in order to address different scenarios. In this paper, we present a Message Oriented Middleware for Cloud (MOM4C) able to arrange customizable Cloud facilities by means of a flexible federation-enabled communication system. From the customer’s the point of view, Cloud facilities are composed as well as a planetary system model, in which the central star is the communication system and planets are utilities (e.g., storage, computation, security, sensing, data analytics, etc). More specifically, we describe the key features of the proposed architecture and its applicability in different scenarios.
