R Services Internals

Niels Berglund has an excellent series on R Services internals.  Here’s the latest post:

This post is the ninth post about Microsoft SQL Server R Services, and the eight post that drills down into the internal of how it works.

This series is like candy to me.  It’s the best write-up I’ve seen so far about what’s really happening when you run SQL Server R Services.
