MonetDB.R is a R extension to connect the Open-Source database MonetDB with R. Using this extension, data that is stored can be used in R analyses with better performance. MonetDB.R is also an Open-Source project, and we welcome your contributions. The connector provides a general-purpose DBI driver for MonetDB. Also, this package is required by the dplyr support for MonetDB.
You will need to download and install MonetDB and the MonetDB.R connector package. Install a stable version of MonetDB.R from CRAN by typing in an R session:
Your data will have to be imported into MonetDB first. You might find the
monetdb.read.csv() function helpful.

There is also a Web version of the documentation for MonetDB.R. The
monet.frame virtual data object has been moved to a separate package and is hosted on GitHub. For even more information, consider our scientific paper on MonetDB.R.
