Confirm Licensing for MathWorks Products Running on the Cloud

Licensed users can run MATLAB® and most other MathWorks® products packaged in containers for use in a cloud environment or on public cloud platforms, such as Azure® and AWS®. Eligibility and configuration requirements for using MathWorks products in containers or public clouds depend on the license type.

If you do not know what type of license you have or what products you are licensed for, you can look in your MathWorks Account:

  1. Sign in to your MathWorks Account.

  2. Under My Software, view the license (or licenses).

    Under Options, note the license type.

  3. Under License, click the license number to see the products on that license.

If you do not have a MathWorks Account, you can create an account at https://www.mathworks.com/mwaccount/register. You can then link the license you are using to your MathWorks Account or purchase a license if you do not have one.

To determine eligibility for running MathWorks products on the Cloud, consult the following table.

ProductLicense Conditions

MATLAB Online

All licensed MATLAB users can use MATLAB Online™ without additional configuration.

MATLAB

  • On public clouds

  • In containers

Your license must be:

  • Current on Software Maintenance Service (SMS). 

  • Linked to a MathWorks Account.

  • Configured for cloud use. Individual and Campus-Wide licenses are already configured. For other license types, contact your license administrator. 

  • For containers:

    • Valid for all MathWorks products in the container.

    • If you have a Concurrent license type, you must supply the port number and DNS address of the network license manager when you run the container. For instance:

      docker run -it --rm --shm-size=512M -e MLM_LICENSE_FILE=27000@MyLicenseServer mathworks/matlab:r2021a

MATLAB Parallel Server™

  • On public clouds

  • In Cloud Center

  • In containers

Your license must be:

  • One of the following types:

    • Individual (a license that only you use that is in your name, not a Home or Student license)

    • Campus-Wide license (a license you use that belongs to your academic institution).

    • Network license (Network Named User or Concurrent)

  • Current on Software Maintenance Service (SMS). 

  • Linked to a MathWorks Account.

  • Configured for cloud use. Individual and Campus-Wide licenses are already configured. For other license types, contact your license administrator.

  • For containers:

    • Valid for all MathWorks products in the container.

    • If you have a Concurrent license type, you must supply the port number and DNS address of the network license manager when you run the container. For example:

      docker run -it --rm --shm-size=512M -e MLM_LICENSE_FILE=27000@MyLicenseServer mathworks/matlab:r2021a

MATLAB Production Server™

  • On public clouds

Your license must be:

  • Concurrent license type.

  • Current on Software Maintenance Service (SMS). 

  • Configured to use a network license manager on the virtual network. By default, the deployment of MATLAB Production Server includes a network license manager, but you can also use an existing license manager. In either case, activate or move the license after deployment.

If you do not have a MATLAB Production Server license, you can use MATLAB Production Server Pay-As-You-Go on Azure.
