These operation conditions impose rigid calendars to control system engineers, reducing to few hours per month the maintenance and testing time available. The SimulatorDS project has been developed to cope with these restrictions and enable test-driven development, replicating in a virtual environment the conditions in which a piece of software has to be developed or debugged. This software provides devices and scripts to easily duplicate or prototype the structure and behavior of any Tango Control System, using the Fandango python library* to export the control system status and create simulated devices dynamically. This paper will also present first large scale tests using multiple SimulatorDS instances running on a commercial cloud.
