Preview: Microsoft R Client
13 July 2016
Microsoft R Client is a free tool that lets data scientists explore production data to create models and algorithms by using powerful ScaleR APIs. When you install R Client, you get access to enhanced R packages and connectivity tools provided in Microsoft R Server.
On its own, R Client is throttled to three cores: one thread for reading and two for processing RevoScaleR HPA functions. R Client is in-memory bound, even with XDF files. Although R Client can be used on its own, you can benefit from hybrid memory, disk scalability, performance, and speed when you push the compute context to an R Server production instance. R Client is optimized to work with all R Server versions.
