MATLAB Parallel Cloud™ allows you to run your applications that use parallel for-loops (
parfor) and other Parallel Computing Toolbox™ features on MATLAB® workers (MATLAB computational engines) running on MathWorks® Cloud. Develop your application on a multicore computer using Parallel Computing Toolbox, and scale up to the cloud with just a few clicks in MATLAB. Using MATLAB Parallel Cloud saves you the work and capital costs of setting up and running your own computer cluster hardware. With MATLAB Parallel Cloud, you can access files stored on MATLAB Drive™. MATLAB Parallel Cloud currently supports only interactive (
MATLAB Parallel Cloud is currently available only to users in the United States and Canada.
Compute-optimized 16-core machines with 60GB RAM

Monthly billing from MathWorks covering software and EC2 hardware usage
Pricing is calculated per session-hour. Sessions are defined as the time between the start and termination of a parallel pool. Each partial session-hour used is rounded up and billed as a full hour of 16 workers.
MATLAB Parallel Cloud is available as a preconfigured cluster profile in Parallel Computing Toolbox.
To sign up using MATLAB Parallel Cloud:
You will be guided through a one-time sign up process*, where you will be asked to log into your MathWorks account and provide credit card and billing information. There is no charge for signing up, and you will be billed only for your usage (i.e., when you have an open parallel pool using the MATLAB Parallel Cloud profile).
