Oracle R Distribution and Open Source R
By Sherry LaMonica on Mar 13, 2012
Oracle plans to actively maintain interoperability with current R versions by developing Oracle R Enterprise on the last stable point release of open source R. With the Oracle R Distribution, Oracle plans to expand support to the open source community by contributing bug fixes and relevant enhancements to open source R. All of these improvements will be made publicly available to the R community. Oracle has already released to the open source community an enhanced version of ROracle, which it now maintains. Support for Oracle R Distribution, Oracle R Enterprise, and Oracle R Connector for Hadoop is provided through standard Oracle Support channels for licensed customers.
