Re: Configure Web tire in other server

SAS is calling every service a server.  I assume you are referring to a multitier installation.

The metadataserver can be seen as an isolated service

Even that can be made as complicated or simple as you could think of. I would not bother on old release but look at 9.4

SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide   That is metadataserver clustering.

SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: Desktop Application Administration Guide (desktop DI with connect etc)

you could desing a SAAS: http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings13/494-2013.pdf (I would do some things different but the concept is good)   

The objecspawner is forking processes  SP WS etc. (app-servers) this combination is always set up together.

Call it a compute-tier.  if you extend that to managed instances it is a grid.

Grid Computing in SAS(R) 9.4 (SAS Grid Topology) that can be managed by LSF with the requirement of shared data locations

Building up with firewall's

Communications Access Methods for SAS/CONNECT(R) 9.4 and SAS/SHARE(R) 9.4 (firewall) 

SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: Middle-Tier Administration Guide (firewall)

Hi,

For multiple server deployment it would be better to get customized plan file from SAS based on your requirement.

Thanks,

@shivas, Before requesting a dedicated plan-file you should know your options and your own business goals.

Giving your personal wallet to SAS in advance and letting decide on your business is making you very dependant of them.

It should be a cooperation where both will have their profits.
