MOC 50291 Developing High-performance Applications using Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008

Seminardauer: 5 Tage

Das Seminar "MOC 50291 Developing High-performance Applications using Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008" wurde abgekündigt. Wir können Ihnen diese Schulung in Form eines Workshops in Ihrem Unternehmen anbieten.


In dieser Schulung lernen die Entwickler - High-Performance Computing (HPC) Anwendungen für Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 zu entwickeln.
Das Produkt Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008, die Vorgehensweisen für Design, Debugging, Tuning und Betrieb von High-Performance Computing-Anwendungen unter HPC Server 2008 kennen.

Sowie Technologien für das Erstellen von HPC-Anwendungen werden vorgestellt, einschließlich Parametric Sweep, Multithreading, OpenMP, .NET Task Parallel Library, MPI, MPI.NET und der SOA-basierte Ansatz für HPC Server.

Die Teilnehmer entwickeln in Visual C++ sowie C# und arbeiten sowohl mit verwaltetem (managed) als auch nicht-verwaltetem (unmanaged) Code.




Entwickler mit sehr guten Kenntnissen bezüglich Windows Plattformen

Visual Studio

C++ und/oder C#
