System Requirements

RStudio Connect can run on physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure. The following distributions of the Linux operating system are supported:

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux (and CentOS) 6.0+
  • RedHat Enterprise Linux (and CentOS) 7.0+
  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • Ubuntu 16.04

We currently only offer installers for the x86-64 architecture and require root privileges both to install and run Connect.

If you are running RStudio Connect on a system with NFS mounts, note that internal SQLite database must live on local storage. See Section 4.5 of the admin guide for further details.

R Requirements

Connect recommends an installation of R version 3.0 or higher. Section 2.1 of the admin guide details how to install R for a variety of platforms.

Server Sizing

The recommended minimum requirements for RStudio Connect are 4 GB of RAM and 2 cores.

RStudio Connect's hardware specifications will depend on the number and type of applications, documents, and analysis running on the server. Standard specifications for a production server might range from 8-16 cores and 32-128 GB of RAM. Some workloads may require substantially larger servers. We highly recommend consulting with the R programmers to determine the resources required to run the Shiny applications and automated R Markdown processes.
