Azure high-performance computing (HPC) for machine learning and AI workloads

Versatile infrastructure for deep learning workloads

Take advantage of near-infinite CPUs and GPUs by running your compute-intensive deep learning workloads on an InfiniBand network or bare-metal Cray supercomputer—and seamlessly orchestrate your simulations on the cloud with Azure Batch and Azure CycleCloud.

Advanced analytics and machine learning as a service

Gain more insights by running inferencing models on top of your simulation data—on a fully configured environment using the software stack and hardware of your choice.

Leadership in AI research

Microsoft is at the forefront of building next-generation intelligent numerical methods. And, with the cloud scale of Azure, Microsoft is delivering reliable HPC infrastructure and tools to scientists and researchers who previously did not have access.
