Microsoft SQL Server 2016 R Services Installation

A couple of weeks beck I wrote a blog-post where I compared CRAN R with Microsoft R Server. The comparison was basically how large data sets are handled. In the post I mentioned that SQL Server 2016 (and later) is the delivery mechanism for Microsoft R Server on the Windows platform. In this post we will look at how to install and enable SQL Server R Services.

This post is the first in a series of posts about SQL Server R Services:

Microsoft R Server

Last Saturday (February 18) I was in Cape Town at the second world-wide satRday conference ever, where I gave a talk named: "Microsoft, Open Source, R: You gotta be kidding me!".

Seeing the session lengths were only 20 minutes, I could not show any code, so in a "weak" moment I promised to put the code up on my web-site together with an accompanying blog-post. This is it :).
