SAS Grid on AWS

Have you done any research on SAS Grid on Cloud Platform such as AWS? or do you have already an environment running on AWS?

 

Grid would need shared File system, how AWS achieving this for SAS? Lustre? how feasible is that?

You need to get a good understanding of the IO throughput your SAS application needs and see if these needs can be met in AWS.
Please let me know if you need more information.
