The paper introduces a framework for the formal specification of autonomic computing policies, and uses it to define a new type of autonomic computing policy termed a resource-definition policy. We describe the semantics of resource-definition policies, explain how they can be used as a basis for the development of autonomic system of systems, and present a sample data-centre application built using the new policy type.
