If you’ve ever attended a presentation or webinar from Margaret Crevar, you know you’re in for a treat with this topic. Margaret’s extensive knowledge and experience with SAS admins makes her the perfect person to walk you through choosing a hardware infrastructure for your SAS applications. She’ll help you gain a solid understanding of all the layers and components of the SAS infrastructure.


This 22-minute video discusses important performance considerations for SAS®9 (including SAS® Grid Manager) and SAS® Viya® when hosted in any of the available public clouds—Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and so on.
