Announcing availability of Linux RDMA on Microsoft Azure

We are excited to announce today the availability of Linux RDMA on Microsoft Azure. With this release, we mark a new milestone in our cloud journey and in our vision to make HPC and Big Compute more accessible and cost-effective for a broader set of users. Linux RDMA makes high-speed, low-latency networking accessible to the engineering and scientific community across the globe, helping them solve complex problems with the applications they use today.

As an example, we see great scaling of LS-DYNA on Azure with both Linux and Windows RDMA. Below is a chart showing scaling of a model on Linux RDMA from two 16-core A9 virtual machines to sixteen virtual machines. This scaling makes it possible to run many more simulations, testing different parameters.
