Clusters and Clouds
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 Parallel Server™. Alternatively, if you do not have an existing scheduler, then MATLAB Parallel Server provides MATLAB Job Scheduler.
