What is the difference between SQL server with R service and R server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to do data analytics with PowerBI visualization. Is it better to use SQL server with R service or R server? What is the difference between the two? Can data analytics and machine learning be done together in R server?

  • SQL Server R Services has been superseded by SQL Server Machine Learning Services, which now includes both R and Python script support:
    SQL Server Machine Learning Services

    You can install SQL Server Machine Learning Services and implement at the database level, or if you need scalability solution, you can install a standalone SQL Server Machine Learning Server, which includes the same machine learning components, plus the ability to execute scalable, distributed machine learning jobs as a web service.

    Hope that helps,
