Big Compute: HPC and Batch

Updated: February 17, 2015

Azure provides scalable, on-demand compute resources to help you run large parallel and high performance computing (HPC) workloads in the cloud. Use the Azure Batch (Preview) service to develop and scale out parallel applications in Azure, or move or extend your on-premises HPC cluster to Azure when you need more capacity.

For an overview, see Big Compute in Azure: Overview.

Azure Batch provides job scheduling and autoscaling of compute resources as a platform service, making it easy to run large-scale parallel and HPC applications in the cloud. By using the Batch SDKs and Batch service, you can configure one or more applications to run on demand or on a schedule across a pool of Azure virtual machines.
