Run MATLAB Parallel Server on Amazon Web Services

Use a customizable reference architecture to run MATLAB® Parallel Server™ on Linux® or Windows® virtual machines in Amazon® Web Services (AWS®).

Use this reference architecture when you want to launch a cluster of MATLAB workers in a specific region, combine your MATLAB resources with your existing cloud resources, or automate deployment.

For a simpler but less customizable method of launching a MATLAB Parallel Server cluster in AWS, try MathWorks Cloud Center.


To use this reference architecture, you need:

  • An AWS account. You are responsible for the costs of all AWS services.

  • An SSH key pair for your AWS account in your chosen region. For more information, see  Amazon EC2 Key Pairs.

  • Parallel Computing Toolbox™ installed on a client machine. The version must match the MATLAB version of the reference architecture.

  • A MATLAB Parallel Server license. For more information on how to configure your license for cloud use, see Configure MATLAB Parallel Server Licensing for Cloud Platforms (MATLAB Parallel Server). You can use either:

Run from GitHub

To launch MATLAB in AWS, use the reference architecture templates provided in the following GitHub® repositories:

You can run the template directly from the link in the GitHub repositories. Choose your MATLAB release, and then click the Launch Stack icon next to the region in which you want to deploy your resources.
