The Web License Service (WLS) is a new Gurobi licensing service for containers. WLS is compatible with containers running on Docker and Kubernetes, including hosted environments on the Cloud such as Amazon Web Services (ECS and EKS) and Microsoft Azure (AKS).
WLS is available for Gurobi Optimizer or Gurobi Compute Server Version 9.1.2 or later.
Compared to other licensing options, WLS provides unique advantages for some use cases because:
- It does not require the installation of any licensing tools on the client.
- It is scalable and available out of the box using multiple worldwide servers.
- It is dynamic and it does not require you to register the container hosts.
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.
