This post is the 24:th post about Microsoft SQL Server R Services, and the third that covers sp_execute_external_script. I have thought many times that this series has reached its end, and I have many times realised I was wrong. Well, now I can say that this is the last post in the series! I started over a year ago (March 4 2017) with an idea about "wouldn't it be cool if I wrote a couple of posts about Microsoft SQL Server R Services"! Over one year and 24 posts later, here we are!

This last post talks about sp_execute_external_script and a parameter named @parallel. When we discuss this parameter, we also touch (a little bit) upon performance aspects of sp_execute_external_script.

There will be at least one more post about sp_execute_external_script after this.
