SAS® Viya™now available in Cloud Foundry environment
Cloud Foundry offers a platform as a service (PaaS) that supports a variety of popular cloud providers including Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS), OpenStack, VMWare’s vSphere and Google Cloud Platform. This SAS Viya release helps customers reduce the risks involved with managing complex analytics environments and supports customers building apps using SAS Viya.
“Today it’s all about making data actionable,” said Perry van der Weyden, CIO of Rijkswaterstaat, the Netherlands’ government agency responsible for managing infrastructure facilities including roads and waterways. “With SAS Event Stream Processing on Cloud Foundry, we can act directly on the feedback provided by our assets - not in hindsight, but as it happens in near real time. More importantly, the combination of SAS and Cloud Foundry enables us to develop new business models creating even more value for society as a whole. Together they deliver an event stream processing environment that harnesses scalability and agility.”
Easier, more agile software deployments
In addition to easily scaling analytics across an enterprise, the SAS Viya Cloud Foundry release helps:
- Reduce the cost of software delivery.
- Increase agility through ongoing software deployment.
- Support a multi-cloud deployment strategy.
SAS now offers SAS Event Stream Processing, SAS Visual Investigator, SAS Visual Analytics, SAS Visual Statistics and SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning for the Cloud Foundry PaaS. The releases are deployed as a collection of Cloud Foundry BOSH releases. BOSH is a general tool for the deployment and lifecycle management of large-scale distributed services.
“Cloud Foundry makes it easier for organizations to deploy and scale SAS software, in addition to building, testing, and deploying innovative custom apps that incorporate SAS’ industry leading analytics,” said Abby Kearns, Executive Director of the Cloud Foundry Foundation. “This will be a great addition to our ecosystem and community.” Cloud Foundry is an open source technology backed by Cisco, Dell/EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Pivotal, SAP and SUSE, and is used by leaders in manufacturing, telecommunications and financial services.
