As of October 30, 2012, the following toolboxes are included in the UT TAH contract:
MATLAB Distributed Computing Server, used in conjunction with Parallel Computing Toolbox, enables MATLAB and Simulink users to execute applications on a computer cluster. The toolbox provides constructs for users to prototype and test applications that solve computationally and data-intensive problems. Once the application runs on the desktop, a user can submit it to the MATLAB Distributed Computing Server product to harness the resources available in a computer cluster.
The Parallel Computing Toolbox has the ability to run four workers locally on a multiprocessor desktop. With the addition of the Distributed Computing Server and a 32- or 64-worker computer cluster, the Parallel Computing Toolbox user may submit programs to the a computer cluster for execution.
The Parallel Computing Toolbox is included in system-wide license. An unlimited license for the Distributed Computing Server is available in 32- and 64-worker versions only for an additional cost. The number of 32- and 64-worker clusters is unlimited, however cluster sizes larger than 64 workers are not supported under the site license agreement. Distributed Computing Server in 8-, 16-, 32-, 64-, 96-, 128-, and greater than 128-worker editions are available via standard academic pricing.
NOTE: For the Distributed Computing Server, a worker equals a core. For example, a dual processor, four-core system consumes eight workers.
