SAS Licensing Model - New Question

Hi all,

can anyone please tell me what a SAS license consists of, i.e. how many admin users, power users, etc.? And what kind of licenses can I lease: single user license, multi-user license, core related license? anything else?

Thanks and Best,

Daniel

Re: SAS Licensing Model - New Question

To get a thorough answer, contact your SAS representative.

Basically, client-server SAS licenses depend on the CPU power (# of cores) of the server, not on user counts.

This is a typical setinit.sas file for SAS 9.2:

PROC SETINIT RELEASE='9.2';

SITEINFO NAME='your_organization_name'

SITE=sitenumber OSNAME='operating_system_designator' RECREATE WARN=33 GRACE=62

BIRTHDAY='creation_date'D  EXPIRE='expiration_date'D PASSWORD=a_number;

CPU MODEL=' ' MODNUM=' ' SERIAL=' ' NAME=CPU000;

EXPIRE 'product_number_1' 'product_number_2' .... 'product_number_X'

        'expiration_date'D / CPU=CPU000;

SAVE; RUN;

Re: SAS Licensing Model - New Question

A contract covering licenses is made by negotiations. It is up to you and the sales representative to agree on the contents.

For a classic single users SAS-base DMS approach (Eguide included) you have: Order SAS® Software: Order Form

For a server based approach as kurt said the server is leading.

Some impression you get by the system requirements of a tool/solution for example System Requirements--SAS® Enterprise Miner(TM) 13.1.

As the party having not all information and maybe not knowing impact of choices you are in a weak position for negotiations.
