We are about to release our first product within the next week. This is a parallel computing environment called NetworkSpaces with a few parallel computing packages bundled in along with the NetworkSpaces server. It works with your current R installation, or with our upcoming product called RPro.

Given your query above, I think you are likely more concerned with our following software release which hopefully will occur prior to the Joint Statistical Meetings (this is the current plan). This will be a precompiled version of R for Mac, Linux, and Windows (if you need other platforms, please do ask us) built with the Math Kernel Library from Intel. We currently have the builds completed and are in the testing and QA phase of both the R/MKL combination and the binary installer.

With respect to validation, we are also compiling the internal documentation information one would need for Installation Qualification and are prepared to work with Pharma on making the Operational Qualification and Performance Qualification process as easy as possible.

I would highly recommend reading this document. From our current discussions with Pharma, it contains a wealth of relevant information to aid you in getting R validated internally within your organization.

Thanks and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or queries you might have. I may not have the answers you need, but can put you in contact with the people who do.
