SAS High-Performance Statistics Requirements

SAS/STAT High-Performance Server

Select a platform:

SAS/STAT High-Performance Server requires both Base SAS and SAS/STAT, which are not included.

One of the following platform-dependent components of Base SAS is required but not included:

  • SAS Studio – Single User (Windows only)
  • SAS Studio Basic (multiple platforms)

SAS/STAT High-Performance Server includes one of the following SAS/ACCESS products:

  • SAS/ACCESS to Greenplum
  • SAS/ACCESS to Oracle
  • SAS/ACCESS to Teradata
  • SAS/ACCESS to Hadoop and SAS LASR Analytic Server

The High-Performance Computing Management Console subcomponent is only deployed on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux computing grid.

SAS LASR Analytic Server is required to enable SAS High-Performance Analytics (Distributed LASR) with Hadoop.

SAS LASR Analytic Server (Distributed or Non-distributed LASR) cannot be installed on HP-UX for IPF or 32-bit Windows.

For Greenplum, Oracle, and Teradata: Base SAS, SAS/STAT, ACCESS, and SAS High-Performance Statistics must be installed on separate hardware from the appliance nodes.

For Hadoop: Base SAS, SAS/STAT, ACCESS, and SAS High-Performance Statistics can either be installed on the head node of the commodity hardware, or on separate hardware from the commodity hardware nodes (asymmetric).

SAS High-Performance Analytics Server (Distributed LASR) on Linux for x64

SAS Products installed on this machine:
  • SAS High-Performance Computing Management Console 2.8
  • SAS High-Performance Node Installation 3.5
  • SAS Plug-ins for Hadoop 1.0

Disk Space Consumed by Installed Products: 1 MB
Supported Environments:
  • Oracle Linux 6.1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family

SAS High-Performance Analytics Server requires Greenplum or Oracle or Teradata (appliance obtained from vendor) or Hadoop (commodity hardware). A corresponding SAS/ACCESS engine is required (and included with the SAS/STAT High-Performance Server).

Use of a co-located Hadoop File System (HDFS) is optional, but it requires a supported Hadoop environment and SAS Plug-ins for Hadoop (which are included with your license). For information about supported Hadoop distributions, refer to http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/v94/hadoop/hadoop-distributions.html. The plug-ins require additional configuration.
