Cloud computing is ever stronger converging with the Internet of Things (IoT) offering novel techniques for IoT infrastructure virtualization and its management on the cloud. However, system designers and operations managers face numerous challenges to realize IoT cloud systems in practice, mainly due to the complexity involved with provisioning large-scale IoT cloud systems and diversity of their requirements in terms of IoT resources consumption, customization of IoT capabilities and runtime governance. In this paper, we introduce the concept of software-defined IoT units -- a novel approach to IoT cloud computing that encapsulates fine-grained IoT resources and IoT capabilities in well-defined APIs in order to provide a unified view on accessing, configuring and operating IoT cloud systems. Our software-defined IoT units are the fundamental building blocks of software-defined IoT cloud systems. We present our framework for dynamic, on-demand provisioning and deploying such software-defined IoT cloud systems. By automating provisioning processes and supporting managed configuration models, our framework simplifies provisioning and enables flexible runtime customizations of software-defined IoT cloud systems. We demonstrate its advantages on a real-world IoT cloud system for managing electric fleet vehicles.
