Cloud Center Release Notes



  • Deep Learning in the Cloud
    • You can use MATLAB with Cloud Center to perform deep learning in the cloud using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2®) with new P2 instances. These instances provide access to NVIDIA® Tesla K80 Accelerators with NVIDIA GK210 GPUs that include Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory protection and double precision floating point operations. For details, see the Deep Learning in the Cloud with MATLAB White Paper.
  • MATLAB worker Amazon Machine Images (AMI) now support CUDA 8.0
  • Cloud Center support for running MATLAB® versions R2015a and R2015aSP1 will be removed in a future release. As newer versions of MATLAB are supported, the older versions will be removed.

  • This release of MathWorks Cloud Center introduces a feature to add local storage on each cluster node. The local storage will be an Amazon EBS volume of type “General Purpose Solid-State Drive” ( "gp2") and existing snapshots can be specified to instantiate the volumes. For more information, see the Cloud Center User Guide.

  • This release introduces support for the following GPU compute instance types, available in US East (N. Virginia) and EU West (Ireland) regions:
    • p2.xlarge, with 2 physical cores and 1 GPU
    • p2.8xlarge, with 16 physical cores and 8 GPUs
    • p2.16xlarge, with 32 physical cores and 16 GPUs

  • This release also introduces support for the following Memory Optimized instance types in all Cloud Center supported regions :
    • r3.xlarge, with 2 physical cores and 30.5 GiB Memory
    • r3.2xlarge, with 4 physical cores and 61 GiB Memory
    • r3.4xlarge, with 8 physical cores and 122 GiB Memory
    • r3.8xlarge,with 16 physical cores and 244 GiB Memory

  • MATLAB worker Amazon Machine Images (AMI) have been patched to mitigate CVE-2016-5195

  • This release of MathWorks Cloud Center supports MATLAB versions R2015a, R2015b, R2016a and R2016b. Cloud Center no longer supports MATLAB R2014b. As newer versions of MATLAB are supported, the older versions will be dropped.

  • This release introduces support for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). VPC enables Cloud Center users to launch clusters in a virtual network that you define. For more information, see the Cloud Center User Guide.
  • MathWorks Cloud Center support for MATLAB version R2014b will be removed in September 2016.
