In this demo, we present COSSIM, an open-source simulation framework for cloud applications. Our solution models the client and server computing devices as well as the network that comprise the overall system and thus provides cycle accurate results, realistic communications and power/energy consumption estimates based on the actual dynamic usage scenarios. The simulator provides the necessary hooks to security testing software and can be extended through an IEEE standardized interface to include additional tools, such as simulators of physical models. The application that will be used to demonstrate COSSIM is mobile visual search, where mobile nodes capture images, extract their compressed representation and dispatch a query to the cloud. A server compares the received query to a local database and sends back some of the corresponding results.
