Computer simulation has already become an indispensible means for complex system developments, and the multi-agent oriented modeling and simulation is one of the most influential methods. In order to support multi-agent oriented simulation, a distributed platform is designed and developed to support the whole process that includes modeling, deployment and simulation. This platform can support uses to define the multi-agent models in a visual way and submit it as a sharable simulation model, which can be instantiated as simulation cases by other users. This platform also supports multiple simulation cases run concurrently. The execution engine can allocate agents to different machines and maintain the balances of loads across these machines. In this paper, the system structures together with the mechanisms behind the platform are introduced.
