Microsoft Azure for Research – eBook

As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, economic disruption is colliding with problems like climate change. To map the way forward in a post-carbon future, we need smart minds working together – and time is of the essence.

More and more, today’s academic research teams are using high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to delve into complex questions and power scientific enquiry across huge datasets. Scaling from desktops to supercomputers, they require large amounts of data storage, processing and analysis. Many are now using cloud computing to help meet these needs in a cost-effective way.

The public cloud provides modern research infrastructure to extend your own. Far more flexible than investing in your own technology, it allows researchers to dial up storage, compute when needed, and dial down when they’re done. With appropriate security to protect intellectual property (IP), academic research teams can share immense datasets with research partners and industry, accelerating game-changing discoveries.
