Announcing Oracle R Distribution

Oracle has released the Oracle R Distribution, an Oracle-supported distribution of open source R. This is provided as a free download from Oracle. Support for Oracle R Distribution is provided to customers of the Oracle Advanced Analytics option and Oracle Big Data Appliance. The Oracle R Distribution facilitates enterprise acceptance of R, since the lack of a major corporate sponsor has made some companies concerned about fully adopting R. With the Oracle R Distribution, Oracle plans to contribute bug fixes and relevant enhancements to open source R.

Oracle has already taken responsibility for and contributed modifications to ROracle - an Oracle database interface (DBI) driver for R based on OCI. As ROracle is LGPL and used for Oracle Database connectivity from R, we are committed to ensuring this is the best package for Oracle connectivity.
