Event Details

This is a 2-Day course which runs from 10am - 2pm Pacific Time on September 6th & 7th, 2012

Course Overview

Revo Scale R is an R package designed, built and optimized to solve one of R’s biggest soft spots – dealing with big data. Dealing with big data involves addressing several different issues, such as interfacing with diverse data sources, storing and manipulating big data efficiently and implementing statistical algorithms that can handle large data.

This course is designed for R users who have mastered the basics of R and are interested in learning how to take advantage of the capabilities of ScaleR for high performance analytics on datasets that exceed the normal physical memory limits of R. The class uses a combination of lecture and labs to instruct students on how to effectively use and script ScaleR functions for big data analyses. In addition, students will learn how to visualize the results of ScaleR analyses through use of graphics


Users with some knowledge of R and multivariate modeling who would like to apply such techniques to very large datasets using ScaleR.


  • Familiarity with the basics of the R language and some prior hands-on experience
  • Understanding of multivariate modeling methods such as linear and logistic regression.
  • Windows Laptop/Desktop with Revolution R Enterprise installed.
  • Revolution Analytics Training Center Requirements
