Requirements for Posit Professional Products#

RStudio is now Posit!

Our professional products have been renamed to Posit Connect, Posit Workbench, Posit Package Manager, Posit Cloud, and Posit Academy so it’s easier for folks to understand that we support more than just R. Please review our Blog post/FAQ to answer commonly asked questions about the rebrand.

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 convenience, Posit makes R binaries and R package binaries available for supported Linux distributions. For more information on installing R and R packages, refer to the Install R page. For Python, refer to the Install Python page.

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.

For more information on planning and sizing your installation of Posit professional products, refer to the overview of configuration and sizing recommendations.
