Starting from now on, we will be replacing references to DOcloud as a shortname for “Decision Optimization on Cloud” by its new shortname DOcplexcloud.
So don’t be surprised, these are the exact same services and features, just a change in the naming that will spread over the next few days from our devcenter documentation & pages, github catalog, github sample readme files, to our website.
CPLEX was the first commercial linear optimizer on the market to give operations researchers unprecedented flexibility, reliability, and performance, allowing them to create novel optimization algorithms, models, and applications. The name CPLEX itself is derived from a Simplex algorithm that is written in C: C-Simplex resulted in CPLEX.
Thanks for your understanding!
