Windows HPC Server with Burst to Azure is ideal for compute intensive applications that demand 1000s of Cores. The HPC/Azure hybrid solution allows both novice users and skilled developers to quickly deploy their existing windows binary executable, HPC SOA code, or MPI-based HPC code.   The HPC job scheduler automatically batch scales your code by allowing cloud nodes to be added to an on-premise head node.   These comprehensive samples should get your Windows/non-Windows users up and running quickly on Azure for their compute-intensive workload needs.
