I'm currently using General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS), and more specifically CPLEX within GAMS, to solve a very large mixed integer programming problem. This allows me to parallelize the process over 4 cores (although I have more, CPLEX utilizes a maximum of 4 cores), and it finds an optimal solution in a relatively short amount of time.
Is there an open source mixed integer programming tool that I could use as an alternative to GAMS and CPLEX? It must be comparable in speed or faster for me to consider it. I have a preference for R based solutions, but I'm open to suggestions of all kinds, and other users may be interested in different solutions.
