Difference between Windows HPC and Azure Batch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    Would anyone please let me know the difference between Windows HPC and Azure batch? I know Azure batch is the cloud service and Windows HPC is an application that can be deployed anywhere to provide HPC solution. Are there any other differences? Which one is better if my whole application resides in the Azure cloud environment. Please let me know.

  • Hi Sharma,

      Simply put, Microsoft HPC Pack is more of a on-premises, hybrid and IaaS product while azure batch is a paas scheduler service. The former gives you more control on customization, flexible to add your own stuff. While the later saves you IT maintenance as you don't manage the infrastructure.

      And if you have needs to run your workload in private cloud, other cloud, or hybrid needs, HPC Pack might be a better choice.
