RStudio Cloud General Availability — Do, Share, Teach, and Learn Data Science

RStudio is proud to announce the general availability of RStudio Cloud, its cloud-based platform for doing, teaching, and learning data science using only a browser. This general release incorporates feedback from thousands of users, based on more than 3.5 million hours of compute time.

We offer a free plan and a number of paid, premium plans - please visit our Plans & Pricing page to learn more.

We have also updated our method for calculating project hours to reduce your usage charges. After 15 minutes of not interacting with a project, its session goes idle. We do not charge for usage while a session is idle, even though its container remains deployed for additional time.

To view your current plan and a summary of your usage for the current period, visit your Account Overview page.
