Hello everyone,

It's been a while since the last update here, but CloudSim Plus keeps going, fast.
The latest 6.3.0 release brings important features to increase simulation accuracy and enable more realistic experiments.

It fixes small bugs and provides new features. The most important one is the support for Virtual Memory (vMem / swap) and Reduction of allocated Bandwidth (BW) for Cloudlets. This way, when you update for this new release, if your cloudlets are requesting more RAM or BW than there is available (over-subscription), they will take longer to finish due to overhead caused by memory swapping and/or reduced allocation of BW.

Check the release page for specific implementation details that you may be aware of.

If you are using CloudSim Plus on your research, please don't forget to cite our main paper, available at And if you haven't given the project a Star at GitHub, please consider doing it. You contribute this way by helping to promote the project.

Best regards,
Manoel Campos
