Big Compute for large engineering simulations

We recently shared our experience working closely with one of our partners, Schlumberger, and talked about the great solution that we helped them bring to their customers: INTERSECT Simulator in the Cloud. This solution is their high-resolution reservoir simulator, INTERSECT, running in Azure, and is one more example of what we like to call "true HPC in the cloud".

To give you an idea, the following chart shows the results of comparing the time it took to run the same INTERSECT model on one of Schlumberger’s on-premises clusters and on A9 instances on Azure:
