Azure Batch

The Azure Batch task type allows for the easy processing of data using Microsoft’s Azure Batch computing service. With Loome Integrate Online you are able to easily interact with Azure Batch without requiring a development background or Azure Batch Shipyard.

The Azure Batch task type is also incredibly flexible, allowing for simple pool provisioning thanks to cluster definitions and integration with your existing Azure Blob connections.

The Azure Batch task type requires an Azure Batch Account connection, learn more in the connections reference.

You can also choose a file share connection. (This connection is optional.)

Selecting a connection here will allow for the file share storage to be mounted and treated as a local drive on a compute node, when that node joins a pool.

You can still set up an external file share in your script if you do not want to choose a connection here.
