Title: A comparison of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure cloud platforms for high performance computing

Abstract

Advances in commercial cloud computing necessitate continual evaluation of the cloud's performance on a variety of applications. This work looks at compute oriented instances from Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure cloud platforms and evaluates them with several high-performance computing benchmarks, including HPCC and HPCG. These benchmarks illustrate that the most cost competitive solution depends on the application to be run.
