Posit Workbench licenses


Deploy the best R and Python developpement tool for your company



Posit Workbench licenses (previously Rstudio server pro)

If your data scientists are using RStudio Desktop on their individual machines and you want to leverage a more powerful computation server that promotes collaboration among your data scientists while implementing best practices, or if they are using the Open Source edition of RStudio Server but you want to enhance the tool’s security and take advantage of “pro” features, Posit Workbench is the preferred IDE for data scientists who use R and/or Python. Posit Workbench enables collaboration, centralized management, server monitoring and metrics, security, and commercial support, providing professional data science teams with the scalability they need.

In case of high resource demands, such as when multiple data scientists are using the tool simultaneously, the licensed version of Posit provides load balancing to distribute work across multiple servers, ensuring optimal conditions for each user.

Posit Workbench users can freely download and use the professional Posit drivers, which include connectors for common databases such as Oracle, Hive, Teradata, enabling data scientists to explore databases from within Posit Workbench and use them with R in a production environment at no additional cost.
