There is no specific cloud application for CBECC-Com models, but you could always purchase any cloud-based service (such as Amazon) an run it that way.

The best ways to reduce run time are to create a simple model. Use the least number of glazing surfaces you can (combine and simplify glazing geometry), and the least number of surfaces overall. Simplify your zoning and geometry wherever you can, you can typically combine all back-of-house or support spaces into one space, for example.

In addition, you can run the "Quick Analysis" option, just to debug and get through errors in early stages. But you should aways run a full annual analysis to determine compliance, as the quick analysis option will sometimes show compliance when a full analysis won't.
