We present a new distributed programming extension of the R programming language. By tightly coupling R to the well-known ScaLAPACK and MPI libraries, we are able to achieve highly scalable implementations of common statistical methods, allowing the user to analyze bigger datasets with R than ever before. Early benchmarks show great optimism for the project and its future.
