  • Question

  • A recent post on the OpenMPI user support list claims that 'the msmpi package has been long (and silently) abandoned by Microsoft'.  Comments?  Is MS MPI still alive and under active development?

  • Yes,

    MS-MPI is still under active development. In fact there has been a new version released every 6 months and we're actively working to be MPI-3.0 compliant.

  • About how many people are on the MS-MPI development team?

  • The number of people working on MS-MPI varies because our team is also responsible for the Microsoft Azure HPC hardware (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/sizes-hpc). I would rather not give a specific number of people currently working on MS-MPI and have that answer held up as false evidence that we are not actively investing in MS-MPI.
