Nanodevice simulations on CloudStack

It is well-known that nanodevice simulations are a high CPU demanding task. Currently, the environmental concern and the green IT revolution have made necessary to reuse the available computational resources being, at the same time, indispensable to reduce the energy consumption as much as possible. Nowadays, thanks to the cloud technology, it is possible to perform on-demand scaling of computational resources. Facilitating the optimal use of resources as they are required, it is possible to optimize the power consumption. In this paper, the possibilities of a private cloud to deploy and use Sentaurus, a tool for nanodevice simulation, are analysed. The architecture of the infrastructure that is being employed to perform semiconductor device simulations and to reuse the available computational power is also presented.
