How many shiny apps can the open source version shiny-server hold? Is there any limitation to CPU cores, or memory?

Thanks!

Within the limits of disk storage you could have any number of different apps. Shiny Server runs fine on an Amazon Cloud instance with 1 core and 1 Gigabyte of memory.

The limit is on the number of sessions (users, basically) you can have hitting the server at one time before performance deteriorates. Scaling Shiny is a video that demonstrates Shiny supporting 10,000 sessions simultaneously, although that takes a lot more and bigger Amazon Cloud instances..
