Grid Connector allows for models to be executed using the Worker or other third-party proprietary grid systems. The overall execution time can be reduced by distributing a model to a grid. Batches and stochastic step-by-step models benefit from distribution as individual models or individual scenarios can be executed in parallel on the grid.
When distributing via the Toolkit API or when distributing via the Foundation interface the Grid Connector is required.
Distributing models via Enterprise does not require an additional Grid Connector license.
