Cloud computing has changed the way organizations create, manage, and evolve heir applications. While the abundance of computing resources at low cost opens up many possibilities for migrating applications to the cloud, this migration also comes at a price. Cloud applications, in many cases, depend on certain provider specific features or services. In moving applications to the cloud, application developers face the challenge of balancing these dependencies to avoid vendor lock-in. We present an abstraction-driven approach to address the application portability issues and focus on the application development process. We also present our theoretical basis and experience in two practical projects where we have applied the abstraction driven approach.
