Gurobi Announces Higher Solver Performance and Expansive Compute Server and Instant Cloud Capabilities
Houston, TX, May 1, 2018 – Gurobi Optimization has released version 8.0 of its leading mathematical programming solver. The latest version improved the overall performance of Gurobi Optimizer while significantly enhancing the features of Gurobi Instant Cloud and Gurobi Compute Server.
“Our newest release -- Version 8.0 -- has again succeeded in pushing the envelope of solver speed and performance all while delivering exciting new capabilities to our Instant Cloud and Compute Server products,” said Dr. Edward Rothberg, CEO and co-founder of Gurobi Optimization.
Significant Performance Improvements
Performance testing using Gurobi’s test library, consisting of literally thousands of real-world models, shows significant improvements versus the already industry-leading Gurobi v7.5. Specifically, for mixed-integer programming models, v8.0 is 16% faster overall and 26% faster on difficult models that take more than 100 seconds to solve. For linear programming models the dual simplex algorithm in v8.0 is 12% faster overall, a very notable improvement for this class of models.
“I experienced significant performance improvements on many of our harder models with the use of Gurobi Version 8.0,” said Michael Lindahl, Head of Analytics at Portchain
New Compute Server CapabilitiesGurobi Compute Server is now packaged and installed as a separate component and includes a number of new features:
