Microsoft R Server for Red Hat Linux and R Server for Hadoop on Red Hat offerings renamed and R Server for SUSE Linux offerings discontinued

Microsoft-Partner-Gold-Volume-Licensing-Gold-Software-Asset-Management

Effective July 1, 2016, Microsoft is consolidating the following 2 products into a single licenses offering – R Server for Linux:

  • R Server for Red Hat Linux (existing Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) renamed)
  • R Server for SUSE Linux (existing SKUs discontinued)

With this change, the existing R Server for Red Hat Linux SKUs are being renamed as R Server for Linux and the R Server for SUSE Linux SKUs are being discontinued and removed from pricelists.

Additionally, naming for the existing R Server for Hadoop on Red Hat SKUs has also been updated to drop the reference to Red Hat. Similar to the Linux offerings above, R Server for Hadoop software will support either SUSE Linux or Red Hat Linux deployments and Microsoft is no longer tracking this distinction at the SKU level.
