Is the data stored in a physical location or on a virtual. Can i see the data that is stored. Is it possible to access the data from server, Can someone please give details
Depends on if you got as distributed edition or not.
Distributed: data stored in Hadoop, or other supported co-located provider (e.g. Teradata).
Non distributed: common data stores available through ordinary SAS session (Base, SPDE, SAS/ACCESS engines).
For more details: there a lot of papers describing LASR/Visual Analytics. Also, there should be some interesting parts of the admin documentation (requires that you hold a VA license).
The datasets are copied from a file system or database to the LASR Analytic Server. Since the LASR server is an in-memory location - it confuses many people. If you have permissions you can access the LASR server with a LIBNAME statement.
If you do not have access to the original source, then you could use the Data Builder to save the dataset into a local location. This technique is explained in the user documentation. Otherwise, your site admin should be able to get a copy of the desired dataset.
However if you have created calculations within SAS VA - these calculations are not saved with the dataset.
