A Novel Framework for Simulating Computing Infrastructure and Network Data Flows Targeted on Cloud Computing

Krauß, Peter; Kurze, Tobias; Streit, Achim; Neumair, Bernhard

Abstract: Understanding how computing infrastructure decisions influence overall performance and cost can be very difficult. Simulation techniques are an important tool to help analyse and evaluate different infrastructure configurations and deployment scenarios. As diversity of cloud computing resources is growing, the space of possible infrastructure configurations becomes larger and finding the best solution becomes harder. In our previous paper, we presented a framework to benchmark cloud resources to obtain objective and comparable results. Based on those results, our simulation framework allows to model applications and to estimate their performance. Compared to other infrastructure or cloud simulation tools our framework excels when it comes to the simulation of network data flows.
