Hi..Million thnx for ur reply to my previous question.

Actually we want to use pyRserve for the production label. Basically the idea is to have a system running on a server which will have both R-Python and the connection running. So that clients can use this system and do their computation there. However we are doubtful about two facts.

Since you are an authority on this so it would be a great help to us if you can give us some idea on this.  

  1)  Whether we can use pyRserve real time production work, does any organization has used it in production label.   

2)  Do we need Linux server for that or we can use windows also for production label. Because it is mentioned in this website

in the section ..

Rserve for multiple users

If more than one user will be using an instance of Rserve, consider running Rserve on a Linux computer. In Windows, sessions are shared and one user can interfere with another. For example if two users are running R scripts and they both define a variable X in R, when one user updates the variable it will overwrite the value for the other user. This is not an issue when Rserve runs on Mac or Linux.

Every calculation in Linux has its own session, which means that variables in the same workbook will not be shared when Rserve is running on Linux.

So windows server may create some problem in that. Do you think Linux would be a better option for production server.

Hi Briti,

we (a biotech / pharma company) use it for productive work for more than 4 years, it has been proven to be really stable on linux.

Concerning windows I do not have much experience, we run the server on Linux only. However the rserve website reports that people are indeed using rserve on windows, so why don't you go ahead and try it out.
