Come watch our development manager, Greg Burgess, give a talk on how HPC applications can be made to work 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 HPC Pack for Windows Azure provides a job scheduler, management tools, and a set of runtimes for developing and deploying parallel and scale-out apps. This talk will present app examples and best practices for using the HPC Pack in Windows Azure to rapidly create scalable compute and data-intensive services. Programming models include parallel apps using MPI, scale-out apps using WCF and data intensive apps using HPC to LINQ.
If the talk and the idea of making an application that can easily burst to the cloud or bulding a Windows Azure-based HPC server excites you, sign up with our beta program so you can be one of the first to try out the new tools when they become available: http://connect.microsoft.com/HPC/content/content.aspx?ContentID=6923
