Excel is often used as the programming environment for developing complex simulations and parameter studies, particularly in the financial and biomedical industries. Windows HPC Server 2008 includes several features that enable Excel users to harness the power of cluster computing to make those simulations faster. This video demonstrates how Windows HPC Server 2008 and the Excel SDK allows users to create and offload user-defined functions (UDFs) to cluster nodes, or even run Excel itself on the cluster. Join Chris Crall as he walks through multiple ways of performing workbook calculations in parallel, and shows how the time to calculate complex spreadsheets can be drastically reduced by using Windows HPC solutions.
