MKL licence for cloud machines?

We are a small company that has recently moved to using MKL for some of our core technologies. We use Amazon EC2 for both deployment and testing. We understand that the MKL licence is per-user and each machine using the licence should be registered with a maximum of 3. How does the licencing work  when we want to use MKL in the cloud when every 'virtual' machine is potentially a different physical machine?

Many thanks

Isn't there a free option for MKL? https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/free-mkl

Sorry about the delay in responding to your question.  Intel MKL now has a new license that makes it easier to use in cloud configurations.  The "named user" restriction is now removed and you can install and use MKL on cloud instances without a problem.  You can find the new license at  https://software.intel.com/en-us/license/intel-simplified-software-license
