Revolution Analytics has been nice enough to provide both datasets and code for analyzing Big Data in R.

Site was updated so here are the new links

 

while the Datasets collection is still elementary, as a R Instructor I find this list extremely useful. However I wish they look at some other repositories and make .xdf and “tidy” csv versions. A little bit of RODBC usage should help, and so will some descriptions. Maybe they should partner with Quandl, DataMarket, or Infochimps on this initiative than do it alone.

 

Overall there can be a R package (like a Big Data version of the famous datasets package in R)

But a nice and very useful effort

Also a recent project made by a student of mine on Revolution Datasets and using their blog posts.

Note how much more better the above project is than use the mini and super clean datasets within R (like Boston)
