I am working on an ubuntu system with 24 core workstation. I need to load a large matrix of size (15,9000,100,90). Can any one please help me resolve this error. Do we get this error because of space limitation on matlab or the system? Since my system has enough space, I am still getting this error.

Type
memory
And check the size of the maximum possible array. An array needs contiguous memory, it's possible yours is fragmented.
If that doesn't help, try
feature('memstats')
(see https://undocumentedmatlab.com/blog/undocumented-feature-function ) Also, look into sparse arrays if the data is sparse (i.e. most elements are 0).

memory() is only valid on MS Windows, but the user is using Linux. The same is true for feature('memstats') -- not available on Mac or Linux.
