Azure provides on-demand compute resources that enable you to run large parallel and batch compute jobs in the cloud. Extend your on-premises HPC cluster to the cloud when you need more capacity, or run work entirely in Azure. Scale easily and take advantage of advanced networking features such as RDMA to run true HPC applications using MPI to get the results you want when you need them.

Getting Started

Run OpenFoam with Microsoft HPC Pack on a Linux RDMA cluster in Azure https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/virtual-machines-linux-classic-hpcpack-cluster-openfoam?toc=%2fazure%2fvirtual-machines%2flinux%2fclassic%2ftoc.json

Run STAR-CCM+ with Microsoft HPC Pack on a Linux RDMA cluster in Azure https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/virtual-machines-linux-classic-hpcpack-cluster-starccm?toc=%2fazure%2fvirtual-machines%2flinux%2fclassic%2ftoc.json

STAR-CCM+ v10 integrated engineering simulation software on Microsoft Azure gives you the additional compute power you need to solve your complex simulations. https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/apps/ubercloud.star-ccm-v10-04

Azure & Slurm https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates/tree/master/slurm

Hopefully one of the scenarios outlined above fits what you are trying to do.
