I'm analyzing ways to get data from Hadoop to put into SAS Visual Analytics. I already read that I can access data from Hadoop with:
1) Base SAS
2) SAS Scalable
3) SAS/ACCESS Interface
4) SAS LASR
5) SAS In-Database Products
But I already read that I can get data from hadoop via JDBC to SAS Visual Analytics... My question is: If I can get data directly to Visual Analytics why I need the five options that I post above?
I've some urgency on this topic. Thanks for your response!!!

You always need LASR, that's a part of the VA infrastructure.
License wise, Base SAS libname engine is always accessible.
The same I would assume goes for SPDE (if that's what you mean my "SAS Scalable"?)
JDBC data would be accessible via the SAS/ACCERSS to ODBC license.
Not sure why you formulate your question this way. Can you rephrase/elaborate some. so we can understand your issue?

Hi LinusH, thanks for your response.
I'm doing my master thesis and already have the data inside Hadoop. I want to explore the data using SAS, and I'm doing a research to know what are the solutions to access and extract from Hadoop to SAS or how can SAS explore data from Hadoop. When I start the research I see amount of options to achieve this, that's why I'm getting a little bit confuse about the relationship between Hadoop Procedure (SAS), SAS Data Loader for Hadoop, Base (SAS), SAS SPD, SAS/Access Interface, etc, etc...
Sorry my confusing...

So this is some kind of product evaluation?
Apart from your thesis, is there any other receivers of your work (and what's their angle on this)?
I would definitely start with your local SAS office to get some kind of solid foundation in your work.
Then you could get back to us on more specific question.

Only me, what my prof said is to search about how can SAS works on Hadoop. That's the reason from my questions... I wanna share with them the possibilities that we have to connect SAS and Hadoop to do some data science jobs.
