If you missed the recent webinar presented by Derek Norton, Using Microsoft R Server to Address Scalability Issues in R, you can now catch up with the replay below. In the webinar, Derek compares Microsoft R Open and Microsoft R Server, and demonstrates using Microsoft R Server to model a 40-million-row data file using logistic regression. (The demo begins at the 23-minute mark.) He also discusses factors you should consider when analyzing big data, for example whether to use a multi-core server, or to distribute the computation in Hadoop or SQL Server.
