Abstract

We introduce the Cloud Research Simulation Toolkit (CReST), a new cloud computing simulation tool designed to enable cloud providers to research and test their systems before release. We compare CReST with other known cloud simulation tools and demonstrate the utility of CReST by evaluating different distributed middleware protocols and associated subscription network topologies for robustness and reliability. Our results extend previous work and demonstrate that the published literature contains inaccuracies. CReST has been released as open-source under a Creative Commons license on SourceForge, with the intention that it can be used and extended by the cloud computing research community.
