Network virtualization is a viable solution to interconnect virtual resources providing isolation and to promote the architecture pluralism for the Future Internet. The virtualization causes an increase of complexity that could be handled by autonomic computing. We developed a multi-agent architecture for autonomic management of virtual networks in infrastructure providers. A prototype system focusing on self-healing was implemented and evaluated on real and simulated environments. The experimental results show the ability of the system to quickly self-heal virtual networks in the presence of failure with a marginal impact on resource allocation.
