      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:
      • The Windows Azure bursting scenarios has reduced the number of ports you have to open in your firewall, using port 443 for most communication
      • The ability to install the HPC Pack software on a server not dedicated to your cluster (e.g. a team file server) for use in a manner similar to the existing Workstation Node functionality

      For more information on what's new in this release please refer to the documentation at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh536248(WS.10).aspx
