Why Run HPC on Azure?


HPC Grade Hardware

Run your work on Intel® Xeon® E5 Processors with QDR Infiniband and RDMA technology. We support MPI applications with a latency of under 3 micro-seconds and non-blocking 32 Gbps throughput.

Get Started In No Time

With our expansive partners ecosystem, rich getting-started tutorials, and wide selection of templates, you can get your workloads up & running in just a few minutes.

Burst To Cloud

Run out of compute? Our seamless solutions will help you burst into the cloud, letting you scale your resources as needed.

Lower Your Costs

With our Pay-As-You-Go model, avoid any upfront and maintenance overhead. And with our premium HPC hardware, you'll be able to do more in less time, letting you make the most out of your software licences.

Network optimized: fast networking with InifiniBand support

The A8 and A9 virtual machines feature Intel® Xeon® E5 processors, with 32 Gbit/s Infiniband network and remote direct memory access (RDMA) technology. These instances are ideal for Message Passing Interface (MPI) applications, high-performance clusters for modeling and simulations, video encoding, and other compute or network intensive scenarios. These instances are available in select data centers.
Instance Cores RAM Disk Size Price
A8
8 56 GB 382 GB $0.975/hr (~$725/mo)
A9
16 112 GB 382 GB $1.95/hr (~$1,451/mo)

Compute Intensive

The A10 and A11 virtual machines feature Intel® Xeon® E5 processors. These are ideal for high-performance clusters for modeling and simulations, video encoding, and other compute intensive scenarios. They are similar to A8 and A9 instance configuration without the Inifiband network and RDMA technology. These instances are available in select data centers.
Instance Cores RAM Disk Size Price
A10
8 56 GB 382 GB $0.78/hr (~$580/mo)
A11
16 112 GB 382 GB $1.56/hr (~$1,161/mo)
