HPCwire: Parallel Big Data R 1.0 release

Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have released pbdR 1.0, a full suite of software packages they developed to make the R programming language easy to use for high-performance computing. R is the most commonly used statistical data analysis software among academic researchers.

Intended to enable big data analysis — analyzing large groups of data on leadership-class supercomputers such as ORNL’s Titan and Summit — among research disciplines that typically work with small datasets, pbdR offers ease of installation and use, computational speed and capability across multiple operating systems.
