Meet the Manager

The Gurobi Instant Cloud Manager makes it easy to stay on top of your Gurobi Instant Cloud. 

An Intuitive Web Interface

With the Instant Cloud Manager, your team can manage your licenses, machines, pools, and settings, and access active machines and machine history.


A pool defines a configuration (machine type, region, and other parameters) as well as a number of compute servers and distributed workers. Instant Cloud provides you with predefined pools for your licenses, and you can create new ones depending on your needs.

A Range of Regions and Machine Types

Gurobi Instant Cloud is available in 5 AWS regions (California, Virginia, Sydney, Tokyo and Frankfurt) and 3 Azure regions (US East, US West 2, EU West). Depending on the cloud provider and region, you are able to select the right configuration for your application. Note that some configurations may not be available in all regions. Click Learn More to see a complete list of regions and machine types.

Automated Provisioning

Your pools are integrated with the Gurobi client libraries so that machines will be launched automatically when you start an optimization session in your application. If the machines are already launched, they will be immediately used for optimization.

Job Management and History

Access the list of queued, running, or recently ended jobs. The optimization expert can then open the job dashboard to display various views about the selected job

Active Machines and History

List your active machines or access the history of recent machines to monitor your environment. Click Learn More to see the interface.
