Abstract: Nowadays, cloud computing is an internet-based platform that renders various computing services like hardware, software and other computer related services remotely. As the adoption and deployment of cloud computing grow, it is critical to evaluate the performance of cloud environments. Cloud simulators are required for cloud systems testing to decrease the complexity and separate quality concerns. Several cloud simulators have been particularly developed for performance evaluation of cloud computing environments. We accomplished comparative analysis of some cloud simulators based on varied parameters. The objective is to offer insights for each analysis, given their features, functionalities and guidelines on the way to researchers on their desire of preference of suitable tools.
