Hi all,  

I need to do massive simulations in the next two years. I estimated that I will need about 64GB memory, if I do not want to split up the calculations. Additionally I would like to have it as fast as possible.  

Can R handle multi-core processors and can all standard operating systems handle the same amount of memory and speed?  

Perhaps someone could point me to a webshop that sales such equipment that is suiteable for fast R computation.  

Thank you, Johannes
