MBrace is an open source framework for large-scale distributed computation and data processing written in F#. It introduces a new programming model for declaring computation based on monads (a.k.a. computation expressions) and managing distributed data. The MBrace framework is an elastic, fault tolerant and multitasking cluster infrastructure that can be deployed to cloud services like Windows Azure. MBrace provides tooling that allows seamless, REPL-style submission of computation directly from the IDE.

In this talk, we will be focusing on the MBrace programming model, showcasing its foundations and how they compare in expressive power with respect to other established distribution abstractions. We will be offering benchmarks and if circumstance allows, a short demo.
