Configuring Off-Host Content Execution in RStudio Connect#
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.
Using Posit Connect, formerly RStudio Connect, with the Job Launcher to enable off-host execution on Kubernetes is currently in beta. The use of this feature in production environments is not recommended. To receive updates on this feature, including when it will be made generally available, please sign up for our Product Information email list.
Connect has beta support for an off-host execution model in which environments are built and content is executed in containers using Kubernetes. The choice to leverage container-based infrastructure may ease management of resource constraints and server costs, maximize process isolation, improve reproducibility, and simplify the maintenance of R and Python environments and system dependencies.
