SAS® Scalable Performance Data Server

Get fast, on-demand delivery of data subsets gathered from large enterprise data stores. SAS Scalable Performance Data (SPD) Server provides user access to SAS data for intensive processing (queries and sorts) on the host server machine. When client workstations from varying operating platforms send processing requests to an SPD Server host, the host returns results in the format required by each client workstation. SPD Server uses the power of parallel processing to exploit the threading capabilities of servers with multiple processors.

The most recent release is SAS Scalable Performance Data Server 5.4.

What’s New

What's New for SPD Server 5.4 on SAS® 9.4

  • The components needed to enable secure communication between a server that is configured for TLS and SAS Management Console are available as part of the SPD Server plug-in for SAS Management Console. There is no longer a need to download the software. For more information, What's New in SPD Server in SAS Viya and SPD Server 5.4.
  • Download software is available to enable secure communication between SPD Server and SAS Management Console. You must have Transport Layer Security configured. For more information, see Configuring Secure Communication with SAS Management Console in SAS Scalable Performance Data Server: Administrator's Guide. The documentation has been updated to clarify the process for shutting down SPD Server on UNIX. For more information, see Starting and Stopping SPD Server on UNIX in SAS Scalable Performance Data Server: Administrator's Guide.

What’s New for SPD Server in SAS® Viya 3.4

  • SPD Server SAS client software is now included in SAS Viya. You can access your existing Version 5.4 and earlier server versions in SAS Viya 3.4. SAS Viya uses SPD Server 5.41 client software. Availability of the client software in SAS Viya enables server users to use their server tables in SAS Viya applications as they do in SAS 9.4. Server tables cannot be accessed with the CAS server. The available functionality depends on the server version. Secure client-server connections and use of PROC DS2 and PROC FEDSQL to make server requests are limited to Version 5.4 and 5.3 servers. To make a secure connection, SAS Viya clients running on UNIX computers have different configuration requirements than SAS 9.4 clients. For more information about the configuration requirements, see Overview of Configuring SPD Server Clients to Perform Server Authentication. In SPD Server 5.41 client software, SPD Server macro variables that take character values are no longer case-sensitive, except for the SPDSSQLR macro variable.
