So … there's clearly a lot of interest in integrating R and Hadoop. Today's webinar was a record-setter for Revolution Analytics, with more than 1000 people signing up to learn how to access Hadoop data from R with the packages from the open-source RHadoop project. If you didn't catch the live webinar, don't fret: the slides and replay are available for download, and you can learn more about the RHadoop packages in the white paper from CTO David Champagne, "Advanced ‘Big Data’ Analytics with R and Hadoop".

RHadoop packages

For those looking for commercial support using Hadoop and R together, RevoConnectR for Hadoop will be available with Revolution R Enterprise 5.0 Server later this year, which includes support for the RHadoop packages on Red Hat Linux with Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop.
