SQL Server with R + the tidyverse
This repository contains everything one needs to deploy a virtual machine on Azure that holds the latest SQL Server edition and installs R Services on it.
In addition to deploying the R Services, the Azure Resource Manager template also includes a custom PowerShell extension which will install some R packages as a demonstration of configuring R out of the box. To demonstrate, we install the tidyverse, a set of some of the most popular R packages today.
This allows for the execution of R scripts from SQL Server, with all the pesky config work taken care of!
To make this work for your organisation:
- Build up an R config script and put it somewhere accessible, then move you would amend the location of the deployment script in template.json
- Amend the parameters.json to include the relevant information for you
- Execute one of the various deploy scripts. To use the PowerShell one, you will need to ensure you can run an externally created, non-signed script
