Matlab Licensing

Researchers can now submit Matlab jobs directly to the clusters from a laptop without purchasing a research license. CRC users can now install Matlab and run directly from their laptops without needing to purchase an annual research license. CRC pays the license to eliminate access restrictions that allowed only students to use Matlab on CRC without purchasing an annual license. CRC offers the Matlab Parallel Server, a set of Matlab functions that allow users to submit jobs from a Matlab desktop session directly to the HPC clusters, allowing less-experienced users to ramp up their workflow and usage with less interaction with the command line through the allows them to take full advantage of the computing power available on the clusters to solve complex problems while using Matlab on their own computers.
