Microsoft R Server (MRS) offers powerful features for enterprise-class advanced analytics across a variety of modern data platforms like SQL Server 2016, Hadoop, and Teradata. A key benefit includes allocating workloads intelligently across resources to achieve parallel and distributed computing – overcoming the memory-bound and single-threaded limitations of open-source R. Features added in the recent release of R Server 9.0.1 add even more value for the enterprise, with new machine learning algorithms, support for data science teams, and easier application deployment.
Check out the recording below from BlueGranite’s data science team for a demo and discussion of these exciting aspects of R Server!
