Our servers just became more useful for machine learning as we equipped them with some of the packages most popular on Kaggle. Among them are randomForest, neuralnet, xgboost as well as e1071 for SVMs and several clustering tasks. Now this makes your analysis workflow simple: set up the data on Github or Bitbucket, start your Bramblecloud cluster, clone your Git repository and start coding with the full power of a large cloud cluster!

On a side note, the R libraries devtools and ggplot2 are now also available by default. And of course we’re running the latest R version 3.2.4. You can find the full list of R packages that are pre-installed on our machines here.
