What is RStudio Server?

RStudio Server is the web-based cousin of RStudio. Functioning in a similar way to the desktop-based RStudio, RStudio Server provides the same features as RStudio Desktop with the capability of allowing users to access their work from any available web browser. St Olaf College provides access to the RStudio Server Pro, enabling increased abilities of the program such as running multiple sessions and versions of R at the same time, simultaneous sharing and editing with peers, and enhanced security of your work.
