Quickly build ready-to-run SAS applications that take advantage of flexible, scalable container-enabled environments in the cloud. SAS Analytics for Containers delivers containerized cloud analytics by providing a powerful set of data access, analysis and graphical tools in a containerized package.
Run SAS® Analytics in the cloud.
Moving your data processing to a public or private cloud? Now you can easily run SAS Analytics there, too. Putting SAS into a container like Docker gives your data scientists and analytical teams a flexible DevOps environment for working with containerized SAS Analytics in the cloud.
Simplify and speed up deployment.
Our solution provides the build once, run anywhere flexibility of the container environment, delivering true containerized cloud analytics by making it easier and faster to use SAS Analytics in the cloud. You can access data from nearly any source. Perform sophisticated analyses. Transform raw data into meaningful information. Then present findings using visuals that help decision makers quickly grasp critical issues. And do all this in the cloud with modular containers that simplify deployment.
Combine containerized cloud analytics with Hadoop processing power.
Need big data analytics? Add the power of a Hadoop distributed computing environment to the ability to run containerized SAS Analytics in the cloud. Locate SAS Analytics for Containers within or near a Hadoop cluster, and combine it with our in-database technologies for Hadoop – SAS Scoring Accelerator, SAS In-Database Code Accelerator and SAS Data Quality Accelerator. Put your SAS solutions to work on the data stored in Hadoop, and run SAS Analytics inside the Hadoop cluster – taking full advantage of Hadoop’s distributed processing power.
Reproduce an experiment at any stage in the research process.
Data scientists working on large, intricate problems can capture an experiment’s state – including data, code, results, package versions, parameters, etc. – at a single point in time. This allows them to quickly reproduce an experiment at any stage in the research process, which saves valuable time.
