In this blog post I will show you the configurations that are necessary for RStudio Server to work with Oracle R Enterprise on your Oracle Database server. In theory if you have just installed ORE and then RStudio Server, everything should work, but if you encounter any issues then check out the following.

In a previous blog post I showed how you can install and get started with using RStudio on a server by using RStudio Server. My previous post showed how you could do that on the Oracle BigDataLite VM. On this VM everything was nicely scripted and set up for you. But when it comes to installing it on a different server, well things can be a bit different.

Basically it is a core everyday tool.
The typical approach is to have RStudio installed on your desktop or laptop. What this really means is that (more...)

Spending a bit more time with Apache Phoenix in my previous post I realised that you can use it to query existing HBase tables. That is NOT tables created using Apache Phoenix, but HBase - the columnar NoSQL database in Hadoop.
I think this is cool as it gives you the ability to use SQL on an HBase table.
To test this, let's say you login to HBase and you create an HBase table like (more...)
Phoenix is a bit different, a bit closer to my heart too, as I read the documentation on Apache Phoenix, the word 'algebra' and 'relational algebra' came across few times, and that mean only one thing, SQL! The use of (more...)
In this post I will share my experience with an Apache Hadoop component called Hive which enables you to do SQL on an Apache Hadoop Big Data cluster.
Being a great fun of SQL and relational databases, this was my opportunity to set up a mechanism where I could transfer some (a lot) data from a relational database into Hadoop and query it with SQL. Not a very difficult thing to do these days, actually (more...)
