Scaling Microsimulation Modeling in the Cloud: A Guide

Abstract

This document introduces the goals of Modeling in the Cloud at the Urban Institute. It details how our cloud-based system uses continuous deployment, containers, an interface, and computing and storage components that leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS), then lists lessons learned and critical decision points. It also provides code for a simple model, several components for public use, and instructions for installing and running the simple model.
