Parallel Computing on the Cloud with MATLAB

Scale Your Parallel Applications to the Cloud

There are multiple options for scaling your MATLAB® programs and Simulink® models to the cloud. Take advantage of your desktop resources using Parallel Computing Toolbox™, and then easily scale your application beyond the desktop to use additional hardware resources without changing your algorithmic code.
