RRE 7 is the Big Data Analytics platform powered by R. Now, customers will have on-demand access to high-performance predictive analytics to accelerate growth, optimize operations, and expedite data insight and discovery from any place at any time.

The cloud is rapidly becoming an integral part of every CTO’s infrastructure strategy,” said Greg Todd, CTO, Revolution Analytics. “Revolution R Enterprise 7 on the AWS Marketplace provides the high-performance Big Data capabilities and ease of access to support modern IT needs.”

Through the AWS Marketplace, users can run computations on data sets up to 1 terabyte on cloud-based Windows and Linux multi-CPU instances from 2 to 32 vCPUs (virtual CPUs), accessing data stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Amazon Relational Data Service (RDS). Utility pricing for both versions starts at $1.25 per core per hour with no long-term commitments. RRE 7 users can register for support on a monitored forum.

The Windows version of RRE 7 is accessed with Windows Remote Desktop and includes an IDE for R developers (Revolution R Enterprise DevelopR). The Linux version of RRE 7 is available through a browser and the IDE for R developers is RStudio Server Pro.

We are pleased to partner with Revolution Analytics to connect RStudio Server Pro with Revolution R Enterprise,” said JJ Allaire, founder and CEO, RStudio. “The web-based interface of RStudio Server was designed for the cloud, and makes it easy for data scientists to use R from anywhere.”

RRE 7 features a unique “write once deploy anywhere” functionality that enables data analysts and IT teams to write code once and deploy it anywhere in a variety of data management platforms, enterprise data warehouses, grids, clusters, servers and workstations without re-engineering costs. The new platform  includes a library of Big Data-ready algorithms that run inside the Cloudera and Hortonworks Hadoop platforms and in Teradata databases in order to achieve high performance.
