Cloud Simulator: A Cost Model Simulator Module for Cloudsim

The vast cloud computing environment holds out good prospects for researchers in the computing technology field. However, with several Cloud providers offering different pricing models, the evaluation and modeling of Cloud environments and applications are getting harder because there is a lack of tools for this task. We propose the CM Cloud Simulator to fill this gap since it provides a comprehensive and dynamic simulation of applications with various deployment configurations and incurs the cost it would require when implemented in a Cloud Provider, according to the cost model of any service provider. The CM Cloud Simulator also provides custom-built cost models through the XML file.
