Do more with R and Python in Posit Cloud

Posit Cloud is a platform for coding and publishing data projects in the cloud. It continues to evolve with more powerful compute options and new subscription plans.

Posit Cloud makes it easy for you to manage data projects in reproducible environments that contain your code, your data, and your results, all of which can be shared with others.

The online platform has changed substantially in recent years. You can now code natively in R with RStudio and Python with Jupyter Notebook. You can securely store database connections for use across multiple projects. And you can publish interactive applications alongside a variety of Quarto and R Markdown documents.

All this new functionality has remained paired with old compute limits and subscription plans. Until today.


Double the Power


Our users increasingly work with larger datasets and more sophisticated models. To support these efforts, we have doubled the maximum computing resources available for RAM (32GB), CPUs (8), and Background Execution Time (96 hours).

These improvements are designed to help data professionals more effectively handle end-to-end workflows in a unified environment for both coding analysis and publishing results.
