Last year, SAS released SAS Container Runtime (SCR). This game-changing runtime engine publishes SAS models and decisions into OCI compliant containers. SAS Container Runtime executes models and decisions outside of SAS Viya using standard technologies. It is lightweight to save on cloud costs, portable to enable easy movement across environments, and scalable to meet traffic needs.
SAS Container Runtime solves multiple problems. First, it allows modeling and decisioning code to move from the development environment to the production environment in an easy, cost-efficient, and trustworthy manner. It allows organizations to move scoring code from their development environment on SAS Viya, a data and analytics platform, to small, fast, scalable, and disposal systems on their production environment where applications can access modeling and decisioning scores over REST API.
SCR creates a runtime container for SAS code. A container is a standard unit of software that packages code and all its dependencies so that the application runs quickly and reliably on all environments. This means that the container can be executed in any cloud or on-prem. It also means that our container does not need SAS Viya for execution
Organizations can greatly benefit by adopting containerized deployments of models and decisions, but where do they start? SAS is providing a free webinar on October 12th to discuss how IT and MLOps Engineering teams can use SCR to create repeatable Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) processes to efficiently test and promote new models and decision flows. In this webinar, Principal Software Developer Glenn Clingroth and Principle Technical Consultant Alessio Tomasino will walk through how to get started using containers for your MLOps processes. Glenn, Alessio, and several other SAS experts will be available to take your questions during this session as well! This is a great opportunity to learn more about getting started with SCR and containerized deployments. Register now for this free webinar!
