Deploying, Benchmarking and Visualising workflows using an AMD HPC Cluster in Microsoft Azure
Once again Red Oak Consulting is proud to announce for the second year running, we were chosen to take part in the Microsoft Azure Centre of Excellence program. This year, in partnership with Microsoft Azure and AMD our project was to demonstrate the performance and scalability of AMD EPYC™ based HPC virtual machines (VMs) in the Azure cloud using representative, readily available finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models.
Supporting this whitepaper are a series of three video tutorials recorded by members of the Red Oak Consulting team. The whitepaper is one document, with clearly defined sections.
Section one supports our first video which was recorded by our Managing Consultant, Nick Skingle. In this section Nick explains how to deploy an AMD HPC cluster in Azure using automation via Azure DevOps.
Section two supports our second video which was recorded by our Principal Consultant, Manveer Munde. In this section Manveer demonstrates the benchmarking of the AMD based HPC cluster using two softwares: Ansys LS-DYNA and OpenFOAM. We also demonstrate the price and performance comparisons including Pay as you go (PAYG) instances and Spot instances.
And finally, section three which supports the final video, is where our Technical Consultant, James Page, demonstrates remote visualisation in Azure using and AMD GPU based remote desktop.
