Today’s hardware has computing power allowing to conduct virtual simulation. However, even the most powerful machine may not be sufficient in case of using models characterized by high precision and resolution. Switching into constructive simulation causes the loss of details in the simulation. Nonetheless, it is possible to use the distributed virtual simulation in the cloud-computing environment. The aim of this paper is to propose a model that enables the scaling of the virtual simulation. The aspects on which the ability to disperse calculations depends were presented. A commercial SpatialOS solution was presented and performance tests were carried out. The use of distributed virtual simulation allows the use of more extensive and detailed simulation models using thin clients. In addition, the presented model of the simulation cloud can be the basis of the “Simulation-as-a-Service” cloud computing product.
