Windows HPC Server sessions @PDC2009
Learn how to accelerate your applications by multiple orders of magnitude using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Microsoft Excel, and Windows HPC Server 2008. See how easy it is to offload the calculations from a desktop application to an HPC Server Cluster using the HPC SOA programming model, with emphasis on performance tuning best practices.
Come get an overview of the DryadLINQ features and runtime environment, and walk through some real-world examples of DryadLINQ programs based on the familiar declarative syntax of LINQ combined with the fault-tolerant distributed graph scheduling of the Dryad runtime. Hear how DryadLINQ provides a programming model and runtime for data-parallel programs running across large clusters and partitioned data sets.
See you @PDC09.
