        This service pack updates the HPC Pack 2008 R2 products listed in the 'System Requirements' section. It provides improved reliability as well as an enhanced feature set including:
        Windows Azure integration - you can now add Azure nodes to your cluster!
        Workstation Node idleness detection - you can now update Workstation Node availability templates to include user-activity and CPU-load thresholds.
        Mark 'Critical' Tasks - you can now mark certain tasks as 'critical' and if they fail the entire job will be marked as 'failed.'

        Note: This update does not support 'uninstallation.' Once installed attempting to remove it will completely remove the HPC Pack 2008 R2 software. We suggest initial testing be done on a non-production system, and that a system backup be performed prior to installing the service pack.
