Modern distributed systems are becoming increasingly complex as virtualization is being applied at both the levels of computing and networking. Consequently, the resource management of this infrastructure requires innovative and efficient solutions. This issue is further exacerbated by the unpredictable workload of modern applications and the need to limit the global energy consumption. The purpose of this special issue is to present recent advances and emerging solutions to address the challenge of resource management in the context of modern large-scale infrastructures. We believe that the four papers that we selected present an up-to-date view of the emerging trends, and the papers propose innovative solutions to support efficient and self-managing systems that are able to adapt, manage, and cope with changes derived from continually changing workload and application deployment settings, without the need for human supervision.
