Oracle has its own R distribution for use with the Oracle Big Data Appliance, so hopefully Microsoft want to rip of this idea and have an R-inside-SQL-server feature. Access to databases from R is pretty good these days (particularly using the dplyr package), but you still have to pass the data out of the database to R, which doesn't make sense for big datasets.
