CosiMate
Developed by: Chiastek
Available at: http://www.chiastek.com/products/cosimate.html
Abstract
Cosimate provides the framework to link heterogeneous simulators representing different abstraction levels, physical and mathematical systems. Models representing different abstraction levels can be mixed and matched providing a high degree of flexibility. CosiMate also supports the study of system behaviour in a multi tasking mode by partitioning the model and distributing the simulation of the various parts across several different machines. Cosimate supports many commercial simulation environments and it is available for Windows, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, and Linux.

Broadcast
Developed by: Forio Business SImulations
Available at: https://forio.com/broadcast/
Abstract
Forio brings web-simulation a step forward since it lets the user enter his/her own model, using a scripting language and then it provides web-based tools to design the user interface. The simulation engine resides on the Forio web server. The main focus is on business simulations and they are geared towards operational issues (e.g. development of market strategy).

Grid Matrix
Developed by: Nektra
Available at: http://research.nektra.com/Grid_Matrix
Abstract
Grid Matrix is a Graphical Grid simulator for Windows that is implemented over SimGrid. Grid Matrix uses SimGrid toolkit to run the simulation. The network can be defined using a graphic interface and run within the application. The simulation code is written in Python using bindings to SimGrid.

The Gridsim Toolkit
Developed by: Anthony Sulustio and Rajkumar Buyya
Available at: http://www.cct.lsu.edu/~dsk/eScience2007Posters/sulistio.html
Abstract
The primary objective of the GridSim project is to investigate effective resource allocation techniques based on computational economy through simulation. Millions of resources and thousands of users with varied requirements must be simulated. The scalability of systems, algorithms, efficiency of resource allocation policies and satisfaction of users is studied. GridSim is a research project based on SimJava

JSIM
Developed by: John A Miller
Available at: http://www.cs.uga.edu/~jam/jsim/
Abstract
JSIM is a Java-based simulation and animation environment supporting Web-Based Simulation. In JSIM, simulation models may be built using either the event package (Event-Scheduling Paradigm) or the process package (Process-Interaction Paradigm). In addition, a graphical designer (jmodel package) allows process models to be be rapidly built graphically. The qds package (Query Driven Simulation) under development controls the storage, retrieval and execution of simulation models as Java Beans and utilizes JDBC to access databases. It also stores model inputs and outputs. Finally, JSIM has three foundation packages: queue, statistic and variate.

SimGrid
Developed by: CNRS/INRIA
Available at: http://simgrid.gforge.inria.fr/
Abstract
SimGrid is a 10 years old toolkit that provides core functionalities for the simulation of distributed applications in heterogeneous distributed environments. It aims at facilitating research in the area of distributed and parallel application scheduling on distributed computing platforms.

SLX - the extensible simulation language
Developed by: Wolverine Corp.
Available at: http://www.wolverinesoftware.com/
Abstract
SLX builds on the strengths of Wolverine's GPSS/H. SLX is structured as a multiplicity of layers, ranging from its C-like SLX kernel, at the bottom, through traditional simulation languages, e.g., GPSS/H, in the middle, to application-specific language dialects and extensions at the top. SLX contains powerful extensibility mechanisms for building new layers atop old ones. SLX has been coupled with other software, including DoD's High Level Architecture (HLA).

STARDIS
Developed by: EDS
Available at: http://www.edsdefence.com/portfolio/consultancy/stardis
Abstract
STARDIS is a simulation tool developed by EDS (http://eds.com) that has been used by EDS for over ten years for predicting the behaviour of future military command and control systems and future communications systems. It has also been used for some civil projects. STARDIS uses an object-oriented, event based approach to model real world entities and their communications. All the relevant discrete activities involved in the real world system are encapsulated in STARDIS entities using a mixture of rules written in structured English, and, if required, more complex routines written in a high level computer language.
