HPC – High Performance Computing
Greeting to my unbelievable – extraordinary student’s across globe .
I believe you heard about HPC – High Performance Computing within Azure . But it may be you haven’t tried the test of HPC . So , today I will talk about HPC – High Performance Computing within Azure .
First of all what is HPC and why we need HPC ? Answer is very simple ,let’s say we have an application or workload that need huge computing resource like 1000 GB of RAM+ or more than that , normal computing size can’t provide that resource to you so you have switch to HPC computing set .
This Cluster set will be divided into two part . One is Head Node and 2nd is Compute Node () . Head node will receive the load and it will distribute among all nodes .
These Big Compute workloads include engineering design and analysis, financial risk calculations, image rendering, complex modeling, Monte Carlo simulations, and more.
Usecase of HPC :-
Graphics and rendering
- Autodesk Maya, 3ds Max, and Arnold on Azure Batch
AI and deep learning
- Batch AI training for deep learning models
- Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit
- Deep Learning VM
- Batch Shipyard recipes for deep learning
Deployment Guide (Master Node) :-

This is self deployment process . If you want you can use HPC template to create a HPC cluster within Azure.
