Big Compute – 8 HRS Hands-on Workshop

In this workshop, you will setup and configure a scale-out media processing architecture using Azure Batch. You’ll discover how to use big compute (scale out compute, embarrassingly parallel processing) techniques without having to write a lot of code and learn how these tasks can be accomplished declaratively. You will implement big compute workloads targeted at 3D rendering and media processing in Azure using Azure Batch and Azure Storage.
