General availability: R Server on HDInsight

den 16 november 2016

Today, R Server on Azure HDInsight is generally available. This release enables scalable machine learning in the R language on Azure HDInsight clusters, and it makes several new features available for the first time.

The core capabilities of R Server address the gap between productivity of the R language in the area of statistics and requirements of many industries to run statistical and machine learning models on large datasets. R Server enables direct deployment of R models into production environments without the need to recode them in a different language—a common problem among data-science practitioners. The scale and robustness of R Server is delivered by a fast parallelized library of machine learning algorithms that uses Apache Spark to distribute computations over clusters of machines. This release of R Server on HDInsight includes the following features:

  • New version of Microsoft R Server 9.0.1
  • Upgrade to Spark 2.0
  • New RxHiveData and RxParquetData functions that enable R Server programs to directly access any Hadoop and Spark data source
  • Support for Azure Data Lake Store
  • Preinstalled R Studio Server Community Edition development tool
