A Study and Analysis on Simulators of Cloud Computing Paradigm

Volume: 4 Issue: 5
Year of Publication: 2017
Authors: Manisha Malhotra


Cloud computing is growing day by day and becoming popular in todays era. A large number of organizations are shifting their business on cloud and paying more attention towards the cloud. This scenario shows that before the adoption of cloud computing business model, there should be an evaluation. This evaluation can be done only with the help of the simulators. This paper presents the study and comparative analysis of existing cloud simulator and shows the comparison that helps the end user for selecting the suitable simulator.
