Abstract: The future internet is evolving as an internet of services, things and infrastructure, and the European Commission is supporting research projects that are contributing to its evolution. Among the others, RESERVOIR, VISION Cloud and CloudWave are three interesting examples of how infrastructures and data can be managed in an effective way and how applications can adapt to the infrastructure, and the infrastructure to the services requested, in order to improve the overall quality of the service provided. From our experience in these three successful projects, we show in this paper how they try to address the challenges described above, providing an important boost to making the future internet vision concrete. We also discuss our view of the future internet where sensors, actuators and objects are part of the cloud.

Keywords: cloud computing; infrastructure as a service; IaaS; data management; adaptation; IoT; internet of things; sensors; actuators; objects; future internet; internet research; quality of service; QoS; web services.
