Running R on AWS | AWS Big Data Blog

Many AWS customers already use the popular open-source statistic software R for big data analytics and data science. Other customers have asked for instructions and best practices for running R on AWS. Several months ago, I (Markus) wrote a post showing you how to connect R with Amazon EMR, install RStudio on the Hadoop master node, and use R packages such as rmr2 or plyrmr to analyze a huge public weather dataset. In this post, we show you how to install and run R, RStudio Server, and Shiny Server on Amazon EC2.
