HPC on Microsoft Azure

SESSION: Effective Application of HPC

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 2:00PM - 2:30PM


Presenter(s):Robert Demb



Microsoft provides a spectrum of HPC solutions that span the needs and requirements of users and developers.

Recently, Microsoft integrated these solutions into a framework called “BigCompute.” This framework consists of APIs, services, and various compute infrastructures for expressing and structuring analytic and HPC workloads.

The emphasis of this framework is to run jobs, not manage clusters.

The most distinguishing feature of this framework is that it provides a holistic approach to designing and/or hosting existing and new applications in the Cloud.

This “better together” approach allows users and developers to get their results faster at a cheaper cost with a system that is optimized for their requirements.

We provide an overview of Microsoft’s “better together” approach, and describe design points that range from virtualized RDMA interfaces that enable single digit latency, to more generalized SOA and declarative interfaces that support traditional MPI, parameter sweep, and general task farming workloads.
