Get Started Guide for HPC Pack 2016 Cloud

This guide provides basic conceptual information and general procedures for installing a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster by using Microsoft® HPC Pack 2016. With HPC Pack, you can create and manage HPC clusters consisting of dedicated on-premises compute nodes, part-time servers, workstation computers, and on-demand compute resources that are deployed in Microsoft Azure.

The steps in this guide will help you to deploy a pure cluster in Azure using the latest version of HPC Pack 2016: HPC Pack 2016 Update 3.
