MATLAB Cloud. How to use if I have an Institution license

MATLAB has several cloud offerings
At the moment, MATLAB Online does not support GPUs. Cloud Center and the Reference Architectures provide access to GPU instances. Cloud Center provides the ability to start MATLAB on (at the moment) g3.4xlarge, g3.8xlarge, and g3.16xlarge, which have 8/16/32 GB GPU memory respectfully and can run on Linux or Windows. The Reference Architectures is more of a "roll your own" and provide access to additional regions, older versions of MATLAB, and additional GPU instances.
Another consideration, since you have the Parallel Computing Toolbox, is that you can launch a job from your desktop machine to a GPU instance running in the cloud, backed by MATLAB Parallel Server. Both Cloud Center and Reference Architectures can spin up GPU instances using MATLAB Parallel Server instead (would require that your institution has a MATLAB Parallel Server license).
Contact Technical Support (email@example.com) to have them walk you through how to use your institutional license in the cloud. They can also provide additional differences between Cloud Center and the Reference Architectures and whether to use MATLAB or MATLAB Parallel Server on the cloud.

You need a Login Named User license for that purpose, which you should be able to do with your license. See
