Comparison of Simulating Tools in Cloud and Grid Computing

Lavanya P., A. Meenakshi Sundharam


Nowadays, Cloud and grid computing is a hottest topic in all over the world, via customers can get information and computer power through a browser. Cloud computing is provided that hardware and software to compute resources as a service through the Internet. The services are classified as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IAAS), Platform-as-a-Service (PAAS) and Software-as-a-Service (SAAS). Grid computing’s goal to switch complex applications by computer resources from a number of distributed node. It is from various conventional computing systems such as cluster computing in its loosely coupled, large-scale, high dynamic and various natures.

Keywords: Simulation Tools, cloud computing, grid computing, software
