Configure License for MATLAB Deep Learning Container on NVIDIA GPU Cloud

To perform deep learning using GPUs in the MATLAB® Deep Learning Container, you must have valid licenses for MATLAB, Deep Learning Toolbox™, and Parallel Computing Toolbox™. Valid licenses for the other products in the container (see Additional Information) are required to access the full functionality of the container.

To check the products you are licensed for, visit your MathWorks Account. Click your license number and then select the tab Manage Products to view a list of licensed products.

You can obtain a trial license for products in the MATLAB Deep Learning Container at MATLAB Trial for Deep Learning on the Cloud.

The license configuration process depends on whether your license is administered via MathWorks online licensing or via a network license manager. Contact your license administrator to find out your licensing method. Sign in to your MathWorks Account, click the license you are using, then click the tab marked “Contact Administrators”.

Online Licensing

To use online licensing with the container, you must have a license for MATLAB and the other products in the container linked with your MathWorks Account. Your license must be current on MathWorks® Software Maintenance Service.

From the following table, select an option for setting up your license for the MATLAB Deep Learning Container based on your license type. If you are not sure what license type you have, visit your MathWorks Account to see the licenses that are linked to your account.

License TypeConfiguration

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

Your license is already configured for use with the MATLAB Deep Learning Container.

Total Academic Headcount (a license that you use that belongs to your academic institution)

Your license is already configured for use with the MATLAB Deep Learning Container.

Home and Student (that only you use and is in your name)

These license types are not eligible to use the MATLAB Deep Learning Container.

All other license typesContact your license administrator.*

*Not sure who the license administrator is? Sign in to your MathWorks Account, click the license you are using, then click the tab marked “Contact Administrators”.

If your administrator has questions, have them contact MathWorks Cloud Support.

When you start MATLAB in the MATLAB Deep Learning Container, you are prompted to log in to your MathWorks account. Your license is automatically recognized from your MathWorks account.

Network License Manager

If you have a license administrated via a network license manager, you can use this license with the MATLAB Deep Learning Container. This procedure applies to the following license types.

  • Concurrent

  • Network Named User

For all other license types, contact your license administrator.

You might need to contact your license administrator to ensure that your license is configured for cloud use. To find out who your license administrator is, sign in to your MathWorks Account, click the license you are using, then click the tab marked “Contact Administrators”. If your administrator has questions, have them contact MathWorks Cloud Support.

To use your network license with the MATLAB Deep Learning Container, supply the location of the network license manager when you run the container. Add an option of the following form to the docker run command you use to start the container. Replace the license server address 27000@MyLicenseServer with the correct port number and DNS address for your network license manager.

-e MLM_LICENSE_FILE=27000@MyLicenseServer

Additional Information

The MATLAB Deep Learning Container contains MATLAB and several other toolboxes that are useful in deep learning applications.

  • Computer Vision Toolbox™

  • GPU Coder™

  • Image Processing Toolbox™

  • MATLAB Coder™

  • Deep Learning Toolbox

  • Parallel Computing Toolbox

  • Signal Processing Toolbox™

  • Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™

  • Text Analytics Toolbox™

Valid licenses for these products are required to access the full functionality of the MATLAB Deep Learning Container. When you open MATLAB in the container:

  • If you do not have a valid license for Deep Learning Toolbox or Parallel Computing Toolbox, MATLAB displays a warning on startup indicating that you cannot use these products.

  • If you do not have a valid license for other products in the MATLAB Deep Learning Container, MATLAB displays a message on startup indicating that you cannot use these products.
