Requirements for RStudio Professional Products
RStudio professional products are applications that run on Linux servers and
enable data science workflows across teams. They require knowledge of Linux
systems, root privileges at installation time and runtime, a user authentication
scheme, and access to the R programming language and an R package repository.
For convenience, RStudio makes R binaries
and R package
available for supported Linux distributions. For more information on installing
R and R packages, refer to the Install R page.
For more information on the prerequisites, refer to the RStudio professional
For more information on supported operating systems and versions, refer to the
RStudio Platform Support page.
Configuration and sizing recommendations
Our products have relatively small footprints, and the requirements for running
RStudio professional products depend mostly on the expected workloads of the end
We recommend installing each product on a separate/dedicated server, and that
each server has the required resources in place for each product.

professional products, refer to the overview of configuration and sizing
