[R-SIG-Finance] Running R as a server or in a cluster

Hi all,

Short of answers, but I do wonder if anyone has used Sun Microsystems
www.network.com for grid work with R.  At 1USD a CPU hr, with R
already built - and a working example script on the service - it seems
like a path worth exploring.

Has anyone given it a try.  I set up an account, but have yet to get
the opportunity to try it out.

Here is the link:
