Under Construction


The objective of this project was to use mixed-integer programming (MIP) models to automatically design a minimum-cost storage area network (SAN). We designed this SAN as a possible alternative to the storage system that was used (up until 2007) by the Department of Engineering Science (DES) in the University of Auckland.
---+++ Progress

The MIP model is expressed in {link:AMPL|https://www.ampl.com} and solved with the {link:CPLEX solver|https://www.ilog.com/products/cplex/}.

This project is research for the Network Design and Simulation Group https://www.ndsg.net.nz/.

NDSG has received a grant to build a Core-Edge SAN from the University of Auckland School of Engineering's 2007 CAPEX fund.
