Our Gurobi Instant Cloud product is built on top of either Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) platform or Microsoft's Azure platform. When you launch an Instant Cloud machine, we launch a machine instance on EC2 or Azure and then start Gurobi Remote Services on that machine. You also have the option of launching multiple machines, in which case we'll create a Remote Services cluster on those machines. Once you have set up your client with a client license file, you will be able to use grbcluster to monitor and administer the cluster. Note, however, that cluster administrative commands are not accessible, since the Gurobi Instant Cloud Manager already plays the cluster administrator role. Note also that communication with your Instant Cloud machine will always use HTTPS, and it will go through a region router.
