Microsoft news: Microsoft initiative invests in parallel computing

"Our goal is to unleash the power of pervasive, accurate, real-time modeling to help people and organizations achieve their objectives and realize their potential. We are bringing together some of the brightest minds in the technical computing community across industry, academia, and science at www.modelingtheworld.com to discuss trends, challenges, and shared opportunities," said Bob Muglia, president of Microsoft's server and tools business, in introducing the initiative in an executive email posted online.

"Through the Technical Computing initiative, we will enable scientists, engineers, and analysts to more easily model the world at much greater fidelity," Somasegar said. "The Technical Computing initiative will address a wide range of users. One of the most critical elements is to help developers create applications that can take advantage of parallelism on their desktop, in a cluster, and in public and private clouds."

"Parallel programs are extremely difficult to write, test, and troubleshoot," Muglia said. "However, a consistent model for parallel programming can help more developers unlock the tremendous power in today's modern computers and enable a new generation of technical computing."

"Microsoft will play a leading role in bringing technical computing power to scientists, engineers, and analysts through the cloud," Muglia said. "Existing high-performance computing users will benefit from the ability to augment their on-premises systems with cloud resources that enable 'just in time' processing. This platform will help ensure processing resources are available whenever they are needed - reliably, consistently, and quickly."

"They need easy access to more computing power and simplified tools to increase the speed of their work. We are building a platform to do this. Our development efforts will yield new, easy-to-use tools and applications that automate data acquisition, modeling, simulation, visualization, workflow, and collaboration. This will allow them to spend more time on their work and less time wrestling with complicated technology," Muglia said.

Microsoft's Technical Computing initiative, announced Monday, will feature investments in parallel computing and technical computing with Microsoft Azure cloud
