MathWorks Enhances Academic Research with New Unlimited Scaling and Collaboration Opportunities in MATLAB

Sponsored by Businesswire

today announced expanded access to MATLAB
Parallel Server
to help speed academic research. Now all researchers
and students at academic institutions with a MathWorks Campus-Wide
License that includes MATLAB Parallel Server have unlimited access to
scale MATLAB programs and Simulink simulations to clusters and clouds.
The new flexible usage policy also extends to visiting professors and
researchers from other academic institutions to enable collaboration.

MATLAB Parallel Server provides a seamless way to use additional compute
resources to speed up research. Now faculty, researchers, and students
across an entire campus can run an unlimited number of simultaneous
MATLAB computational engines, called MATLAB workers, on clusters that
run on university-owned clusters or on clouds such as Amazon Web
Services and Microsoft Azure. MATLAB Parallel Server offers access to
cluster resources through the familiar MATLAB environment, provides the
ability to run on multiple machines without algorithm changes, and helps
to access cloud clusters or local high-performance computing (HPC)

Expanded access also offers flexibility in working with academic
researchers, students, and faculty from other institutions by offering
them access to MATLAB and Simulink. Now these academicians can access
MATLAB on authorized campus machines and university HPC clusters for
their non-commercial work. This helps to support collaborative research
projects across institutions and provides access on HPC infrastructure,
where common data might be stored, without the complexity of checking if
collaborators have a MATLAB license.

“Research has been the backbone of innovation across industries and, as
these projects become more complex, researchers need the ability to
scale and collaborate to be truly successful,” said Silvina
Grad-Freilich, head of HPC marketing, MathWorks. “We believe that
offering unlimited scaling and simplified collaboration helps us to best
address the increasing parallel computing needs and joint working
opportunities that today’s research projects demand.”

The extended access to scaling and collaboration is offered with all
releases of MATLAB Parallel Server, including earlier versions of the
product under its previous name of MATLAB Distributed Computing Server.

About MathWorks
MathWorks is the leading developer of
mathematical computing software. MATLAB, the language of engineers and
scientists, is a programming environment for algorithm development, data
analysis, visualization, and numeric computation. Simulink is a block
diagram environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multidomain
and embedded engineering systems. Engineers and scientists worldwide
rely on these product families to accelerate the pace of discovery,
innovation, and development in automotive, aerospace, electronics,
financial services, biotech-pharmaceutical, and other industries. MATLAB
and Simulink are also fundamental teaching and research tools in the
world’s universities and learning institutions. Founded in 1984,
MathWorks employs more than 4500 people in 16 countries, with
headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, USA. For additional information,
