Abstract

The variety and complexity in cloud marketplaces is growing, making it difficult for cloud consumers to choose cloud services from multiple providers in an economic and suitable way by taking into account multiple objectives and constraints. In this paper, we present an extension of CloudSim implementing cloud management functionality to enable the assessment of consumer-oriented brokering schemes. The underlying discrete-event simulation framework allows evaluating their performance in more realistic operating conditions in a repeatable manner. We integrate brokering mechanisms to support a multi-criteria location-aware selection of virtual machines in multi-cloud environments by implementi..
