Overview of SOA Programming Model and Runtime System for Windows HPC Server 2008
With the increasing number and size of the problems being tackled on ever-larger clusters, developers, users, and administrators face increasing challenges in meeting time-to-result goals. Applications must be developed quickly, run efficiently on the cluster, and be effectively managed so that application performance, reliability, and resource utilization are optimized. Taking an approach to building applications using Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) with Windows HPC Server 2008 can help meet these challenges. Windows HPC Server 2008 provides a platform for SOA-based applications. The SOA programming model allows solution developers and architects to rapidly develop new High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster-enabled interactive applications and easily modify existing distributed computing applications.
