Clusters and Clouds

Discover cluster resources and work with cluster profiles

If your computing task is too big or too slow for your local computer, you can offload your calculation to a cluster onsite or in the cloud to run your MATLAB® code with minimal changes. Try Parallel > Discover Clusters in the MATLAB toolstrip to find out if you already have a cluster available.

If you already have a cluster with a scheduler, you can integrate MATLAB with it using MATLAB Distributed Computing Server™. Alternatively, if you do not have an existing scheduler, then MATLAB Distributed Computing Server provides MATLAB Job Scheduler (MJS) .
