R Server Best Practice and backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    By a customer, I need to install the R Server from the SQL Server Installation Center.

    Is there any best practice for installation and configuration?
    Like perhaps for example, install the R Server on a separate drive.

    Except to backup the library directory, there has been something he has to be backuped?

    Thanks for your feedback
    Regards,
    Stéphane

  • Hi STH,

    You can follow the best practice for SQL Server for R Service.

  • Hi Shau,

    Thanks for your answer but I search BP for the R Server and not the R Services.

    But the link is good to have!

  • For SQL Server, we offer R as an extensibility service as well as standalone R Server install for Windows Server, For R Server, it doesn't have best practice like in SQL Server to have data, backup and log in different drives. You can opt for the defaults in the installation wizard.
