"R Server review"

What do you like best?

Gives users the familiarity of the R language for machine learning while leveraging the scalability and reliability built into Hadoop and Spark. It also eliminates memory and processing constraints and easily extends their code from their laptop to large multi-terabyte files producing models that are more powerful and accurate.

What do you dislike?

Beyond the inclusion of Microsoft ML, MRS 9 allows R models to be exposed as Web services, which is the same way Azure Machine Learning works. Microsoft points out that with the help of open source API framework Swagger, the Web service deployment means that models built in R can be used from virtually any programming language and platform.

Furthermore, with MRS 9, Microsoft says models that are trained in one environment can even be moved to, and scored in, other environments, and that new active-active high availability features in MRS 9 mean these models can be scaled for high-demand production use.
