The "Launcher" feature was introduced in RStudio Workbench 1.2 and is only available under named user licensing. RStudio Workbench 1.2 without Launcher is available under existing server-based licensing. For questions about using Launcher with RStudio Workbench, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
RStudio Workbench with Launcher allows you to run R sessions and background jobs on external cluster resource managers.
RStudio Workbench 1.2.5 and newer versions include plugins for running R sessions and background jobs on Kubernetes or Slurm clusters.
In addition to Kubernetes and Slurm, Launcher can be extended to work with other cluster resource managers using its pluggable architecture.
