Due to its high demand in processing power, the large-scale simulation of ITS applications is likely to also benefit from the concept of differentiation of the usage of a resource or a service and its physical location on remote High Capacity Computing (HCC) platforms as introduced by cloud computing.In this paper, we propose a “simulation-as-a-service” approach consisting of two building blocks: a web-interface/server front-end used to remotely configure the simulation of ITS applications, and a back-end consisting of a controller and a High Capacity Computing (HCC) platform using Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)to run the remote simulations independently of the required simulation environment.Our demonstration illustrates how simulations of ITS applications requiring a large number of executions could be configured on a web-interface and remotely run in parallel on HCC platforms.
