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

Top White Papers and Webcasts

  • On-demand Event Event Date: February 12, 2015 The evolution of systems engineering with the SysML modeling language has resulted in improved requirements specification, better architectural definition, and better hand-off to downstream engineering. Agile methods have proven successful in the software domain, but how can these methods be applied to systems engineering? Check out this webcast and join Bruce Powel Douglass, author of Real-Time Agility, as he discusses how agile methods have had a tremendous …

  • Today's agile organizations pose operations teams with a tremendous challenge: to deploy new releases to production immediately after development and testing is completed. To ensure that applications are deployed successfully, an automatic and transparent process is required. We refer to this process as Zero Touch Deployment™. This white paper reviews two approaches to Zero Touch Deployment--a script-based solution and a release automation platform. The article discusses how each can solve the key …
