Most scientific applications tend to have a very resource demanding nature and the simulation of such scientific problems often requires a prohibitive amount of time to complete. Distributed computing offers a solution by segmenting the application into smaller processes and allocating them to a cluster of workers. This model was widely followed by Grid Computing. However, Cloud Computing emerges as a strong alternative by offering reliable solutions for resource demanding applications and workflows that are of scientific nature. In this paper we propose a Cloud Platform that supports the simulation of complex electromagnetic problems and incorporates classification (SVM) and resource allocation (Ant Colony Optimization) methods for the effective management of these simulations.
