We introduce an elastic MCA called Sandman that allows applications to specify their own policies which may span multiple MCA domains. Background information is given in section [*]. Section [*] discusses basic operations of the Sandman. Light-weight virtual networks or netlets are introduced in section [*] and dynamic code loading in section [*]. Techniques to achieve interoperability are the topic of section [*], while global policies are discussed in section [*]. Implementation details are mentioned in section [*]. Related work and conclusions, finally, are the topics of section [*] and [*] respectively.
