Cloud computing is a paradigm of large scale distributed computing which is a repackaging of various existing concepts/technologies such as utility computing, grid computing, autonomic computing, virtualization and internet technologies. Cloud computing use the Internet technologies for delivery of resources 'As a service' to users on demand. As it is a developing technology, various issues such as security, energy management, resource provisioning and reliability need to be addressed. This paper is to study a simulation toolkit known as CloudSim and some of the research papers done to address some of the above mentioned issues using this toolkit.
