What's New in the SAS 9.1 Scalable Performance Data Engine


The SAS Scalable Performance Data Engine (SPD Engine) is a SAS LIBNAME engine that provides rapid data delivery to applications by using multiple CPUs to provide parallel data I/O. The SPD Engine is not intended to replace the default Base SAS engine. Rather it is intended for rapid processing of very large data sets that are stored in partitions across multiple disk volumes.

Note:   z/OS is the successor to the OS/390 operating system. The SAS 9.1 Scalable Performance Data Engine is supported on both OS/390 and z/OS operating systems and, throughout this document, any reference to z/OS also applies to OS/390, unless otherwise stated.  [cautionend]
