  • Hi  Akhil,

    From your question it apears that you are interested in some High Performance Computing (HPC).

    Microsoft does have technology, but it is available on server operating systems.

    You can get HPC on Azure.

    Hope this will help you get started.

    There is also something called a beowolf cluster that allows you to combine machines to increase their performance.
