In this paper we propose a provider-managed, model-based adaptation approach for cloud computing applications, allowing customers to easily specify application behavior goals or adaptation rules. Delegating control over corrective actions to the cloud provider will pose advantages for both, customers and providers. Customers are relieved of effort and expertise requirements necessary to build sophisticated adaptation solutions, while providers can incorporate and analyze data from a multitude of customers to improve adaptation decisions. The envisioned approach will enable increased application performance, as well as cost savings for customers, whereas providers can manage their infrastructure more efficiently.
