Moving high-performance computing workloads to the cloud can be a time-consuming and often impossible process due to the cloud data infrastructure capabilities not meeting the application requirements. Azure NetApp Files–a native Microsoft Azure service–enables you to move workloads to the cloud at great scale and speed to ensure maximum commercial value and faster time to market.
- Unprecedented Cloud Performance: The Azure NetApp Files performance operates at sub-millisecond latencies, which is unprecedented across any cloud file service. This enables companies to move and operate their performance hungry HPC workloads in the cloud as if those applications were on-premises.
- Large-Scale Shared Access: Azure NetApp Files offers wide-scale access to both Linux and Windows file shares so highly parallelized HPC architectures can grow their compute node count and effectively reduce computational time.
- Simple & Easy Scalability: Adjust the capacity and performance of a given volume to expand and contract on-demand within the Azure portal.
