Announcing the immediate availability of the next major version of Windows HPC software: HPC Pack 2012
The fourth 'major version' of the HPC software brings improved performance and reliability to the HPC platform, simplifies the installation experience, and adds some great new features such as:
If you are using the Windows Azure HPC Scheduler SDK, this update comes with the same reliability and performance improvements that the HPC Pack is getting, and also adds compatability with the Windows Azure SDK October 2012 / v1.8 release.
Before installing either, take a look at the What’s New in HPC Pack 2012 document and Release Notes over on our Windows HPC Technical Library.
More details and additional documentation will arrive in January, in the mean time head over to the Windows HPC Discussion forums if you have any questions or comments. We'll be happy to hear from you!
Note: The single HPC Pack 2012 download contains all the features previously seperated in the Express, Workstation, Cycle Harvesting, and Enterprise editions. Standalone 'Client Utilities' and 'MS-MPI' packages have also been updated for HPC Pack 2012.
