Terms of the Service

Limited seats

We currently have 10 concurrent slots for RStudio Pro and 100 concurrent slots for RStudio Connect. Due to the limited number of seats available for each resource, we are asking users to estimate the amount of time they will need to use the service. When this time period is up and we run out of seats, their account will be locked to free up a seat for another user, but their account and content will still be available for future use.

Support and feedback

Due to the novel nature this service, users should expect that they may have to work collaboratively with us troubleshoot problems, like package installation. Additionally, users will also need to give feedback on the service.


Please be aware that availability of the service is not guaranteed past April 2023, though we will work with users to transition any assets they have created out of the service if necessary.
