RStudio Professional Drivers#
RStudio makes it easy to connect to your data. RStudio Professional Drivers are ODBC data connectors for some of the most popular databases:
RStudio Professional Drivers help you:
- Explore your databases using RStudio Workbench
- Develop and deploy applications and reports that depend on databases to RStudio Connect
- Use R with databases in the cloud or your production environment
RStudio offers ODBC drivers for many common data sources at no additional cost to current paying customers. These drivers are commercially licensed from Magnitude Simba and are covered by the RStudio Support Program.
RStudio professional drivers may only be used with other RStudio professional software and may not be used on a standalone basis or with other software.
Use RStudio professional drivers with the following products:
- RStudio Team bundle
- RStudio Desktop Pro
- RStudio Workbench
- RStudio Connect
- Shiny Server Pro
We do not sell or offer RStudio Professional Drivers for use with our free and
open-source server or desktop software and our license doesn't permit the
drivers to be used with these products. Additionally, the RStudio Professional
Drivers are tested against the R ODBC connection toolchain, namely the
R packages. Currently, RStudio Professional Drivers are tested against
pyodbc in Python.
