Project Description
Azure Grid is the community edition of the Neudesic Grid Computing Framework. It provides a solution template and base classes for loading, executing, and aggregating grid tasks on the Windows Azure platform. It also includes a sample grid application.

Azure Grid is documented in a 3-part article on David Pallmann's blog, also available in PDF form in the downloads area. The article describes the design pattern for Azure Grid, then proceeds to code and run a sample fraud scoring grid application.

Azure Grid includes a WPF-based Grid Manager for launching and monitoring job runs.

The Grid View provides an overview of tasks that are pending, running, or completed.

The Task View shows the tasks and cloud workers executing them.

The Results View shows the input parameters and results for each task.

Azure Grid uses cloud compute and storage resources responsibly and minimizes cost. Task input data and results are stored on-premise.
