SageMathCloud provides a cloud computation platform for Julia, Python and R. It looks useful, at least for teaching purpose. It does not, however, seem to to allow the users to install third-party packages. Given that one big attraction of R comes from its huge package ecosystem, this can potentially be a problem for serious usage.

SageMathCloud does allow users to install third-party packages for R. However, you may need to enable network access for you project to make this easy. Just email with a link to your project.
