Gurobi Compute Server and Remote Services Overview

This section gives a quick introduction to the various capabilities of Gurobi Remote Services. It starts with a discussion of common use cases, and continues with a description of some of the more important Remote Services features. It then continues with a discussion of the different roles that typically come into play in a Gurobi Remote Services cluster. The client role is fairly simple to understand, but the administrative and cluster administrative roles require a bit more elaboration. We'll also talk about the Remote Services agent, which is the program that runs on each Remote Services node, and grbcluster, which is the program that is used to perform various administrative tasks. Finally, we give a simple example of how to submit a job from a client to a Compute Server cluster.
