Archer Simulation Framework: Leveraging grid computing for architecture research
Archer integrates wide-area "Grid" computing hardware and virtual-machine based software to make it very easy for researchers, educators, or students to run a variety of computer architecture simulation tools, including Simics/Gems/FeS2 and SESC. Archer is an open infrastructure with hundreds of cores available for computer architecture simulation, available for academic users around the globe. Archer currently has a pool of approximately 600 CPUs readily accessible from an easy-to-install virtual machine appliance that can also be deployed in cloud-provisioned resources such as Amazon EC2. The system has logged thousands of jobs consuming over 450,000 CPU hours since its deployment. For more details and access, please see the Archer Wiki site.
