Oracle broadens support for open-source R analytics

Aug 26, 2012, 16:00 (1 Talkback[s])

Oracle is expanding its support for R, the open-source language for statistical analysis, the company announced Friday.

New features include R ports for the Solaris and AIX OSes, adding to existing support for Linux and Windows environments, Oracle said. Oracle has also extended R support to its TimesTen in-memory database.

In addition, Oracle will deliver an open-source distribution of R that can work with the Sunperf, MKL and ACML math libraries, which are provided by Oracle, Intel and AMD, respectively. This will allow R "to run extremely fast on all compatible hardware," Oracle said in a statement.
