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.
The goal of this document is to demonstrate how you can quickly set up and benchmark a highperformance computing (HPC) cluster in the Microsoft Azure environment as a proof of concept
for running Star-CCM+ version 14 from CD-adapco, a Siemens Business. This example shows you
how to create the cluster, provides benchmarking options, and installs the Star-CCM+ simulation
software so you can test its performance on Azure.
