Gurobi introduced its Web License Service (WLS) for Docker and Kubernetes container environments with the release of Gurobi 9.5. With Gurobi 10.0, the team expanded WLS to support nearly all types of containerized environments. Moreover, customers can now also obtain WLS licenses that allow users to run Gurobi in virtually all deployment scenarios, including containerized environments, virtual machines, and bare-metal machines, on Linux, macOS, and Windows.
Compared to other licensing options, WLS provides unique advantages for some use cases because:
When using WLS with containers, you will need to make sure your containers can communicate on the internet. WLS will generate cryptographic tokens (JWT) that will enable the application to run on a specific container for a given period of time. The tokens – which allow you to continue to use the containers – are renewed automatically. Communication with WLS is secure, lightweight, and fast.
The Web License Manager is the admin console for WLS. It allows you to display licenses, download license files, monitor usage, and create additional API keys as necessary.
