RevoScaleR on Azure Synapse or Databricks

Is this possible? I know the RevoScaleR package runs on SQL; is there any roadmap plans or workaround hacks to get it running on either Databricks and/or Synapse?

Hello @JeremyOtsap-1091,

Unfortunately, we don’t support RevoScaleR in Synapse and we do not have R language support at this time.

How you are using RevoScaleR today, could you please share more details on your scenario?

Are these legacy R scripts that you want to avoid re-writing or are you continuously developing using RevoScale?

Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.

Its more of what I'd like to do, if possible. Bit of background we are a Microsoft CSP and consultancy. Our data estate modernization GTM leverages Azure Synapse; in fact I'd say its pretty core to the offering we've developed. Now in the meantime we've leveraged SQL 2017 w/ the ML services to run RevoScaleR scripts in stored procedures. We'd ideally like to keep all that work, and just move it to Synapse, thus allowing the work to be centralized as well. I.e. sharing notebooks, etc.

Is there a better way? Is there anything on the roadmap? Honestly I've invested a HUGE amount of time developing RevoScaleR expertise, and I really do not want that to goto waste. I realize the industry is more focused on Spark and Python, but I'm looking to leverage what I can.

Any advice greatly appreciated
