This GitHub repository contains a set of HPC and Batch related samples that demonstrate the usage of Microsoft Azure Batch services along with some general purpose utilities. See http://azure.microsoft.com/services/batch/ for more information on the Azure Batch service.
Before you can interact with the Batch service, you will need a Batch service account. For detailed information on creating a Batch account, see Create and manage an Azure Batch account in the Azure portal.
Azure Storage viewer
You will find it useful to have an Azure Storage viewer available to assist with managing containers and blobs, as well as observing interaction of the samples with Storage. There are a number of free viewers available including the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer which is cross-platform, free, and from Microsoft.
