Microsoft HPC becomes Big Compute

Microsoft’s Big Compute team – formerly the Windows HPC team – is to become part of the company’s new Enterprise and Cloud Engineering group.

Working closely with Microsoft and external academic and lab partners, the Big Compute team will continue to develop the HPC Pack for Windows Server clusters and extend the applications to Windows Azure.

Big Compute aims to enable customers to run the applications via the cloud, even if they do not have access to the necessary cluster infrastructures.

In addition, enterprises customers will be able to run on-premises servers with optimal loads in Azure, while developers can cost-effectively test applications and models at scale.

As part of the Windows Azure Group, Big Compute will drive low-latency remote direct memory access capabilities and ensure customers can provision thousands of cores to run their computing jobs.
