Why Azure for HPC? Academic workshop A Deep Dive Workshop into HPC and Azure at University of Oxford 10.00am – 4.00pm, 13th June 2017

  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…

World-class HPC on demand, Azure allows you to simulate complex models without having to manage infrastructure.

You may want to run lots of computations, such as a parameter study or Monte-Carlo run. Running a high-performance computing simulation that needs high-bandwidth, low-latency (< 3 microsecond) supercomputer networking to scale to hundreds of cores is uniquely possible on Microsoft Azure. So you can have whatever cluster you want, lots of basic machines, or…
