Running R Code Faster

GraalVM's runtime for R is the fastest at running scalars in R. Now you do not have to rewrite R in C++ for performance.

FastR interoperability


Zero overhead interoperability with other GraalVM languages such as Python or JavaScript.

FastRCluster: running FastR from GNU-R

The goal of FastRCluster is to provide the intermediate ground and let the GNU-R users easily try FastR and/or use FastR to run only selected parts of their apps. FastRCluster is an R package, targeted at GNU-R, that provides a seamless way to run FastR inside GNU-R using the existing interface of the parallel package, which also integrates well with the future and promise packages. The talk will also present how FastRCluster can be leveraged in the context of Shiny applications.
