MPI (tachyon, pi)
This sample demonstrates how to run MPI applications on Windows Azure nodes and how to submit MPI jobs through the HPC Job Scheduler.
Message Passing Interface (MPI) is a platform-independent standard for messaging between HPC nodes. Microsoft MPI (MS MPI) is the MPI implementation used for MPI applications executed by Windows HPC Server 2008 R2. The following MPI samples demonstrate how to run MPI applications on Windows Azure compute nodes. These samples include two MPI applications:
This sample demonstrates the following:
