Modern businesses require APIs that have rock solid uptime, where deploying a new version never drops a request, where you can promote and roll back versions, and that perform with low latency and high throughput. Domino has built our R API endpoint functionality leveraging open source tools such as nginx and tresletech’s plumber package, to support modern data science teams desire to reduce time from modeling to productionalization. In this talk, we discuss lessons we have learned building this functionality using the R ecosystem. We describe some of the technical challenges building such a platform, and some best practices for researchers who want to make their R models easily deployable as APIs. Domino’s technology has served millions of requests for clients ranging from online media to energy companies. We will tell you how we did it.
