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  

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.
