This question has been asked before on this community. Here is the answer:
"Using SAS/ACCESS to ODBC is the only way you can currently access salesforce.com data.
Please contact Data Direct or Simba or salesforce.com themselves for the driver."

A quick Google confirms there are ODBC drivers available for SalesForce. So as long as you have a network connection to the database from your SAS server plus SAS/ACCESS to ODBC installed and licensed and the SalesForce ODBC driver installed then in theory it should all just work.
BTW it shouldn't matter whether SalesForce is cloud-based or not as long as you have a working network connection from SAS.
