Service Description

The automated execution of large computational processes (e.g., for mathematical calculations, video rendering, data analyses) normally poses several challenges: the temporary provision of sufficient compute capacity and distribution of the computation logic and associated data are difficult or impossible to implement in conventional IT. Azure Batch can handle these tasks, making the capabilities of batch processing available to every Azure user. The service provides the cluster environments required, distributes the calculation logic provided by EXE file or script, manages the execution, and releases the computational resources following completion so that only the required resources are billed.
