The Shared Environment Project is a SAS Research and Development effort to have an Enterprise Class environment where SAS R&D staff worldwide can develop and test in a common SAS configuration that is administered with IT system management best practices in mind. This effort will allow Research and Development staff the opportunity to use a customer like environment that is stable and secure while producing quality enterprise class software. The purpose of this page is to have a place to provide SAS and IT professionals content produced from work done in the R&D Shared Environment.
The SAS® Intelligence Platform and SAS Business Solutions provide intelligence that can drive many critical business activities. Due to this, IT professionals may have a need to include SAS as part of their overall Business Continuity and IT Service Continuity Management portfolio. There will be a need to reduce the vulnerability to your business of a diaster or major failure and protecting your business-critical services and data. The Shared Environment admininstration team has produced a paper SAS Backup and Disaster Recovery: When Disaster Strikes, What Will You Do? What Will You Do? that documents SAS backup and restore considerations that can be included in your overall enterprise disaster recovery strategy.
