SAS® Cloud Management Services

The SAS Cloud delivers world-leading analytics software and services in a SAS-managed environment on Microsoft Azure.

Maximum uptime, minimal administrative overhead.

One size doesn't always fit all. Some organizations have the capacity for advanced analytics that is customized, configured and managed off-site. For others, regulatory, data or system requirements prohibit the use of an off-site solution. No matter where your organization falls along that spectrum, SAS offers both hosted and remote managed services that enable you to take advantage of cutting-edge SAS technology with maximum uptime.
