Evaluate RStudio Professional Products#

Try on your desktop#

The RStudio Team QuickStart VM is a virtual machine that runs on Windows and macOS, which makes it easy for you to get a hands-on evaluation experience with RStudio professional products.

The RStudio Team QuickStart VM includes 45-day evaluations of RStudio Workbench, formerly RStudio Server Pro1, RStudio Package Manager, and RStudio Connect along with tutorials and how-to guides. The RStudio Team QuickStart VM is for evaluation use only and is not intended for use in production.

Try in your environment#

In addition to trying RStudio Team via the QuickStart VM, you can also install any of the RStudio Professional Products in your own on-premises or cloud-based environment for either trial or production use using any of the methods listed on the Installation of RStudio Professional Products page.

Most of the installation methods will start the products with a 45-day evaluation period in which you can make use of their full functionality. During or after the evaluation period, you can activate your installation of the products with a commercial license without having to reinstall or reconfigure the products.


  1. We have renamed RStudio Server Pro to RStudio Workbench. This change reflects the product’s growing support for a wide range of different development environments. RStudio Workbench enables R and Python data scientists to use their preferred IDE in a secure, scalable, and collaborative environment -- whether that is the RStudio IDE, JupyterLab, Jupyter Notebooks, or VS Code. We want RStudio Workbench to be the best single platform to support open source, code-first data science, whether your team is using R or Python. Please see our official Announcement and review our FAQ regarding the name change from RStudio Server Pro to RStudio Workbench.
