© 2014 IEEE.Scientific workflow management systems face a new challenge in the era of cloud computing. The past availability of rich information regarding the state of the used infrastructures is gone. Thus, organising virtual infrastructures so that they not only support the workflow being executed, but also optimise for several service level objectives (e.g., Maximum energy consumption limit, cost, reliability, availability) become dependent on good infrastructure modelling and prediction techniques. While simulators have been successfully used in the past to aid research on such workflow management systems, the currently available cloud related simulation toolkits suffer form several issues (e.g., Scalability, narrow scope) that hinder their applicability. To address this need, this paper introduces techniques for unifying two existing simulation toolkits by first analysing the problems with the current simulators, and then by illustrating the problems faced by workflow systems through the example of the ASKALON environment. Finally, we show how the unification of the selected simulators improve on the the discussed problems.
