OpenCF-R: R IN THE CLOUD

J. C. Castillo, F. Almeida, V. Blanco, A. Santos

Abstract

One of the main goals of cloud computing-oriented environments is to offer access to distributed resources through interfaces and technologies based on web services. OpenCF is a portable framework that shares these goals and can be used as a development platform that offers hardware and software as a service. We include in this paper how to adapt an OpenCF portal to add and execute statistical package R routines. Thus, we contemplate the option that user can launch or incorporate R scripts as a new service dynamically to the portal, making remote computing easier for inexpert users. Automatic management and dynamic aggregation of R services are showed as new concepts in this context.
