Cloud computing offers the ability to provide parallel and distributed simulation services remotely to users through the Internet. Services hosted within the "Cloud" can potentially incur processing delays due to load sharing among other active services, and can cause optimistic simulation protocols to perform poorly. This paper discusses problems such as increased rollbacks and memory usage that can lead to degradations in performance for optimistic parallel simulations.
