Building and Running HPC Applications in Windows Azure
Windows Azure is an ideal environment for deploying compute-intensive apps that take advantage of the scale-on-demand capability of the cloud. The Windows Azure HPC Job Scheduler provides a resource manager and a set of runtimes for developing and deploying parallel and scale-out apps. This talk will present how to deploy a HPC cluster using both Visual Studio and powerShell, and shows an sample application that uses the HPC job scheduler in Windows Azure to rapidly create scalable compute and data-intensive services. Programming models include parallel apps using MPI, scale-out apps using WCF.
