Oracle provides the

Oracle R Distribution, an Oracle-supported distribution of open source

R. Support for Oracle R Distribution is provided to customers of the Oracle Advanced Analytics option and the Oracle Big Data Appliance.

The Oracle R Distribution facilitates enterprise acceptance of R, since

the lack of a major corporate sponsor has made some companies concerned

about fully adopting R. With the Oracle R Distribution, Oracle plans to

contribute bug fixes and relevant enhancements to open source R. Oracle

R Distribution also employs Intel’s Math Kernel Library (MKL) to enable optimized, multi-threaded math routines, providing relevant R functions maximum performance on Intel hardware.

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.
