Microsoft HPC Pack: Node Deployment

 

Updated: November 20, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft HPC Pack 2012, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2

This section provides information about additional cluster deployment options and scenarios for adding nodes to the HPC Pack 2012 R2 or HPC Pack 2012 cluster.

For introductory information, see Getting Started Guide for Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2 and HPC Pack 2012.

Title

Description

Adding Nodes to a Cluster

The topics in this section provide basic procedures and options to add domain-joined compute nodes and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) broker nodes that are managed by your HPC cluster. You can deploy nodes from bare metal, add preconfigured nodes, or add nodes by importing a node XML file.

Get started with on-premises Linux compute nodes

This guide contains information about adding on-premises Linux compute nodes to your HPC cluster.

Burst to Azure Batch with Microsoft HPC Pack

This guide contains information about extending (“bursting”) your HPC cluster to include Azure Batch pools as compute resources.

Burst to Azure Worker Instances with Microsoft HPC Pack

This guide contains information about extending (“bursting”) your HPC cluster to include Azure worker role instances (Azure nodes) as compute resources.

Adding Workstation Nodes to a Windows HPC Cluster

This guide provides step-by-step procedures for adding computers to your HPC cluster that are running the Windows operating system but are not managed by your cluster. These computers are added as workstation nodes, and you can use them to run cluster jobs.

Adding Unmanaged Servers to a Windows HPC Cluster

This topic summarizes the requirements and steps for adding servers for cycle harvesting that are running the Windows Server operating system to your HPC cluster.

Deploying iSCSI Boot Nodes in a Windows HPC Cluster

This guide provides step-by-step procedures for deploying diskless compute nodes to your HPC cluster that boot over iSCSI.

Configuring the HPC Pack Head Node for High Availability

This guide provides procedures and guidance for deploying HPC Pack where the head node (specifically, a set of head node services) is configured in a failover cluster.

Configuring Microsoft HPC Pack for High Availability with SOA Applications

This guide provides procedures and guidance for deploying HPC Pack in a configuration designed for high availability for applications based on service-oriented architecture (SOA). For this configuration, you configure the head node (specifically, a set of head node services) in a failover cluster. Then you can configure one or more WCF broker nodes (specifically, the HPCBroker service) in one or more separate failover clusters.

Move Cluster Nodes to a New Head Node

This topic provides information about moving compute resources from one head node to a newly installed head node.
