Requirements for Posit Professional Products#

Posit professional products are applications that run on Linux servers and enable data science workflows across teams. They require knowledge of Linux systems, root privileges at installation time and runtime, a user authentication scheme, access to the R and/or Python programming languages, and an R and/or Python package repositories.

For more information on the prerequisites, refer to the Posit professional product requirements. For more information on supported operating systems and versions, refer to the Posit Platform Support page.

Configuration and sizing recommendations#

Our products have relatively small footprints, and the requirements for running Posit professional products depend mostly on the expected workloads of the end users.

We recommend installing each product on a separate/dedicated server, and that each server has the required resources in place for each product.
