Scale-out or conveniently parallel HPC applications are well suited to running in Windows Azure. Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 SP1 provides a gateway for running existing HPC applications seamlessly on Azure. Learn how to develop Windows HPC Cluster SOA WCF-based applications, parametric sweep and MPI applications to run on Azure or a cluster. Different alternatives to handle data, storage, security, and troubleshooting these applications will be discussed. This session will also show developers how to set up a single box development environment for HPC Server applications, and how to provision compute nodes and Azure and monitor applications.
