Deploy SQL Server R Services Without Internet Access

Arvind Shyamsundar shows how to install SQL Server R Services on a machine without internet access:

When deploying SQL Server R Services, it is important to note that the setup components for SQL Server do not include the Microsoft R Open and Microsoft R Server components. Those ‘R Components’ (as we will refer to them later in this post) are provided as separate downloadable components. SQL Server will automatically download these when executed on computer which is connected to the Internet. But in cases where setup is done on a computer without Internet access (quite typical of many SQL Server deployments) we need to handle things differently. There is a documented process for doing this. But even with the documentation, we still had some customers with questions on the process.

Inspired by those customer engagements, this blog post walks through the process of setting up SQL Server R Services in environments without Internet access. We walk through a number of scenarios, right from the very basic scenario to the more complex ones involving unattended and ‘smart setup’.

This is a nice walkthrough.  I wanted to highlight a link at the end showing how to create a local repository so you can install packages as well.

Neil Saunders declutters a complicated visual with a simple scatterplot: Sydney’s congestion at ‘tipping point’ blares the headline and to illustrate, an interactive chart with bars for city population densities, points for commute times and of course, dual-axes. Yuck. OK, I guess it does show that Sydney is one of three cities that are low density, […]

Using ggpairs To Find Correlations Between Variables In R

Akshay Mahale shows how to use the ggpairs function in R to see the correlation between different pairs of variables: From the above matrix for iris we can deduce the following insights: Correlation between Sepal.Length and Petal.Length is strong and dense. Sepal.Length and Sepal.Width seems to show very little correlation as datapoints are spreaded through out the plot area. Petal.Length and Petal.Width also shows strong correlation. Note: The […]
