The Gurobi Instant Cloud is a simple and cost-effective way to get up and running with powerful Gurobi optimization software running on cloud systems. It allows you to launch one or more computers, pre-loaded with Gurobi software and dedicated to you, to handle whatever your optimization needs are. Simply choose the subscription plan and deployment option that best meets your needs, and then pay only for what you use.
The Gurobi Instant Cloud can be accessed over the Internet by any Windows, Linux, or Mac computer. Communication is secured with HTTPS encryption. Most Gurobi Cloud plans provide Gurobi Compute Server capabilities, which include queuing and load balancing for an unlimited number of client jobs. These plans also offer distributed optimization capabilities.
You can use these cloud machines alone, or in conjunction with your own in-house Gurobi licenses. Please see our Licensing Overview page for a detailed comparison between our different Gurobi Cloud plans.
