googleComputeEngineR provides an R interface to the Google Cloud Compute Engine API, for launching virtual machines. It looks to make the deployment of cloud resources for R as painless as possible, and includes some special templates to launch R-specific resources such as RStudio, Shiny, and OpenCPU with a few lines from your local R session.
