Abstract: Cloud computing is a model that offers a convenient access to a set of configurable resources which could be provisioned and released with less administration. The main lock is to assume interoperability and portability between cloud services. We deal with a special type of services called 'virtual appliance'. These services offer pre-packaged applications, preconfigured and encapsulated in virtual machine images running on virtualisation platforms. This type of service enables flexible and easy deployment, while ensuring interoperability, reuse and migration of services. This paper aims to offer architecture to deploy 'virtual appliance' in cloud environment.

Keywords: cloud computing; virtual appliance; software defined network; SDN; NFV; OpenStack.
