Gazebo runs best with a strong cpu/gpu combination, because it generates camera images for the sensors, and performs rigid body dynamics simulation. The market for GPU equipped cloud machines available on demand is very restricted at the moment.

CloudSim is developed in the context of DARPA's Challenge where simulation of complex world and walking robots must be achieved in real time.

For these reasons, CloudSim is designed around these expensive machines... right now.

Running on cheaper machines (or even free ones) is an important long term goal for CloudSim, in scenarios where real time performance is not an issue. Stay tuned.
