DryadことLinq to HPC終了のお知らせ

As part of this release we’ve also updated the preview version of LINQ to HPC, however, this will be the final preview and we do not plan to move forward with a production release.  In line with our announcement in October at the PASS conference we will focus our effort on bringing Apache Hadoop to both Windows Server and Windows Azure.  Hadoop has emerged as a great platform for analyzing unstructured data or large volumes of data at low cost, which aligns well with Microsoft’s vision for its Information Platform.  It also has a vibrant community of users and developers eager to innovate on this platform.  Microsoft is keen to not only contribute to this vibrant community, but also help its adoption in the Enterprise.  We expect a preview version on Windows Azure available by end of the calendar year.

Windows HPC関連のアップデートがあったのですが、その中でのお話。

MSのMap Reduce的な何かであったLinq to HPC(開発コードネームDryad)が結局日の目を見ないままプロジェクト(少なくとも公開されるされない的な点では)としては終了のようです。
