Hello,
I would like to try Matlab on Azure. I have found some information on the github page but something is not clear to me: I have an individual Matlab licence installed on my computer, do I need a second licence to install Matlab on an Azure VM ?
Best regards,

Below is a documentation which describes available licenses.
Assume you have a commercial Individual license, you can install and use MATLAB on Azure VM with the existing license. Individual license is allowed to use MATLAB simultaneously on up to two computers.

Thank you for your answer. Unfortunately, my license is "standard - designated computer". I just found this page: https://fr.mathworks.com/help/install/license/overview.html
which states "A Designated Computer License authorizes you to install and run MathWorks® software on only one computer." as I feared... :-(

No, as License Agreement 1.2.(i) says, "The Designated Computer License Option provides for use of Programs on a single, physical (not virtual) designated Computer." It means Designated Computer License cannot be used in cloud VMs.
So, I recommend trying a trial license on cloud machines first.
