We present GroudSim, a Grid and Cloud simulation toolkit for scientific applications based on a scalable simulation-independent discrete-event core. GroudSim provides a comprehensive set of features for complex simulation scenarios from simple job executions on leased computing resources to calculation of costs, and background load on resources. Simulations can be parameterised and are easily extendable by probability distribution packages for failures which normally occur in complex environments. Experimental results demonstrate the improved scalability of GroudSim compared to a related process-based approach.
