Q: How do I install and activate the Matlab Parallel Computing Toolbox?


Once you have ordered and received a license for the Parallel Computing Toolbox from IS&T's Software Distribution team you may need to take further steps to complete the configuration of your cluster.

Purchase of the PCT toolbox from MIT allows limited parallel processing on a single machine (up to 12 computational engines on a multicore desktop). To extend parallel processing beyond this requires that you purchase a MATLAB® Distributed Computing Server license directly from the Mathworks.

Please contact our Mathworks representative Tim Mathieu ( for ordering and pricing information.
