Oracle expands support for R statistical programming language

The enhanced support delivers improved experience for analysing Big data with R

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle has expanded its support for the R, the open source programming language used for statistical modelling by academia.

The company has announced to support new platform ports of R for Oracle Solaris and AIX in addition to Linux and Windows, connectivity to Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database.

In addition, the support Oracle will support to Oracle Database, and integration of hardware-specific Math libraries for faster performance.

Oracle is delivering an open source distribution of R that is designed to work with Oracle’s Sun Sunperf, Intel’s MKL and AMD’s ACML Math libraries, enabling R to run fast on all compatible hardware.

With the integration of the R statistical programming language with Oracle technologies will offer data scientists a consistent experience on the infrastructure of their choice, whether on a laptop, on Hadoop, or in the database itself, the company said.

The company also offers Oracle R Enterprise, a component of Oracle Advanced Analytics that enables R processing on Oracle Database servers.

With the new developments, Oracle helps enterprises acess big data analytics and improves data scientist productivity with enhanced performance.
