Learn how to set up and benchmark a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster in the Microsoft Azure environment. The template referenced by this white paper provides a proof-of-concept for running Star-CCM+, a multidisciplinary, real-time engineering simulation platform by CD-adapco, a Siemens Business. The template will create the HPC cluster, provide benchmarking options, and then install the Star-CCM+ simulation software so you can test its performance on Azure.
February 2020: Updated to take advantage of the latest HPC VMs, which are optimized for applications driven by memory bandwidth.
