Abstract

There is a demand from simulation users for speed, the ability to obtain quickly results from simulation runs. Cloud computing offers the potential for scalable, on-demand access to resources that can be used to speed up simulation. However, developing cloud computing solutions for industry is difficult without appropriate expertise. This paper introduces the CloudSME project that is dedicated to developing cloud computing solutions for simulation in industry and presents an overview of the CloudSME Simulation Platform that is being used to support an initial set of Cloud-based versions of Simul8's discrete-event simulation environment, Ascomp's TransAT computational fluid dynamics application, Ingecon's 3D Scan Insole Designer tool and 2MORO's Bfly software for aircraft maintenance logistics. The paper presents an overview of cloud computing, the CloudSME project, the architecture of the CloudSME Simulation Platform and its two key elements: gUse and CloudBroker.
