This is good service, I think. But it does not look scalable enough, I hope I can use RHadoop with more disk space, memory and cpus in the future there. 

Thanks for the mention, Vincent - it really created some load here on the servers !

Yonetaro,

I believe you checked out the 255 GB RAM, 32 cores CPUs servers. The scalability was indeed the core value that we thought will bring the users here and we haven't gave up on that yet. Once we get our next round of investment, we will work on the easier integration with Hadoop. 

Thanks for using the system, it only helps us make it better!

Has anybody compared both http://statace.com/ and http://www.roncloud.com/?  Any other similar sites?

Yes - we have examined RonCloud very well and it lacks so much stuff that StatAce has. Here is a quick list:

- StatAce allows you to save your files, scripts, workspaces and results like in Dropbox. StatAce even integrates with Dropbox and you can easily synchronize with your with PC. RonCloud does not do any of those.

- StatAce allows you to collaborate with other users  by letting you share your project privately among the chosen users. RonCloud doesn't

- StatAce keeps all your scripts under version control and you can easily go back to overwritten versions. It is implemented with Git underneath and that will soon be integrated with GitHub. RonCloud does not have any of those.

- Both StatAce and RonCloud show the console output from the commands, but StatAce adds well-contained graphical results which can be exported to Excel XLSX and HTML documents.

- StatAce allows you to share your analyses with non-R users with a simple tool for creating a graphical user interfaces (GUI). RonCloud is not any near to this.

- StatAce runs on powerful servers and you can use on demand environments with up to 255 GB RAM and 32 cores CPUs. RonCloud would crash if you executed rnorm(1000000)

 

The list could go on and on. RonCloud is clearly far far away from StatAce, which could be more easily compared to the programmer-oriented RStudio, but StatAce does not intend to be an IDE for programmers, but more like a workbench for statisticians and data scientists.

Here is another way to scale R in the cloud:

If I could give one piece of advice to the makers of both services it would be to mention on their websites who they are and where they are located. As a user, I would like to know who I'm dealing with and what their goals are with their service. Right now, this information is nowhere to be found on their websites.

Yeah, that's a great advice, Maarten-Jan, we have been procrastinating that for too long :)
