Marketplace Offerings

RStudio provides the following cloud marketplace offerings:

AWS

  • RStudio Connect
  • RStudio Server Pro

Azure

GCP

These offerings are best suited for building out proof of concepts or short-term projects. Due to how licensing is managed for marketplace offerings, in-place upgrades of marketplace offerings are not supported. If you have a long-term, persistent need for RStudio professional products it is recommended that you follow the traditional install route within your own infrastructure. If you need to upgrade a marketplace offering, the following outline serves as a general guideline.

Upgrading

If an updated version of RStudio Server Pro or RStudio Connect is made available in the marketplace, the following steps can be used to migrate to the newer version.

RStudio Connect

  1. Start a new instance from the marketplace with the upgraded version
  2. Follow the guidelines for server migration in the administration guide
  3. Restart RStudio Connect on the new server
  4. Confirm everything is working as expected on the new server
  5. Delete the old server

RStudio Server Pro

  1. Start a new instance from the marketplace with the upgraded version
  2. Copy over the contents of user home directories from the old server to the new server
  3. Copy over configuration files (/etc/rstudio) from the old server to the new server
  4. Restart RStudio Server Pro on the new server
  5. Confirm everything is working as expected on the new server
  6. Delete the old server
