Look at the task view for High Performance Computing (
http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/HighPerformanceComputing.html) there is
a section on packages for large memory and out-of-memory analyses.  There
are also sections on parallel computing which is one way to deal with large
data if you have access to the right type of cluster (part of the dataset
lives on each machine so can fit in the local memory).
