Simulation of Cloud Computing Environments with CloudSim

D. Atanasov / T. Ruskov
Published Online: 2016-05-09 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/itc-2016-0001


Cloud computing is a recent advancement wherein IT infrastructure and applications are provided as ‘services’ to end-users under a usage-based payment model. The aim of this paper is to describe and evaluate CloudSim: a new generalized and extensible simulation framework that enables seamless simulation, and experimentation of emerging cloud computing infrastructures and management services.

Keywords: Cloud computing; datacenter; simulation; resource management
