SAS and Sun Unveil Reference Architectures to Help Customers Streamline Implementation for Faster, More Accurate Data Analysis.

Our partnership and joint solutions

For over 20 years, Sun and SAS have teamed to deliver solutions that provide the high performance, massive scalability, and technological agility required to support the needs of the real-time enterprise. Because SAS supports all Sun SPARC and x64 systems, the Solaris OS and its most critical features, such as Containers to reduce server sprawl, customers can experience the great performance and cost savings of running business intelligence applications on the most energy-efficient servers.

Sophisticated applications such as SAS require an underlying infrastructure that can deliver essential IT services such as high availability and reliability, scalability and performance, data privacy and security, and ease of monitoring and systems management. Sun powers a mission critical SAS environment through:

  • The Datacenter of the Future.
  • Advanced infrastructure capabilities that include:
    • Eco-computing.
    • Consolidation and virtualization.
    • Grid computing.
    • The award-winning Solaris10 operating system.
