In principle, CloudSim can run atop a variety of cloud computing providers. The current implementation is AWS EC2-specific through its reliance on the boto library. We started with EC2 and boto because of their extensive and, for the most part, reliable set of features.

We plan to generalize CloudSim to run on other cloud computing systems, perhaps through the use of libcloud, which provides a common abstraction layer. Doing so may require refactoring to, for example, not rely on AWS's Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
