SAS Grid on the AWS Cloud

This Quick Start deploys and configures SAS Grid on the AWS Cloud.

SAS Grid is a shared, centrally managed analytics computing environment that features workload balancing and management, high availability, and fast processing. A SAS Grid environment in the AWS Cloud provides the elasticity and agility to scale your resources as needed.

This Quick Start bootstraps the infrastructure for a SAS Grid cluster by provisioning Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances for SAS Grid, SAS Metadata Server, and SAS mid-tier components. It also deploys SAS Grid into this infrastructure and sets up DDN Cloud Edition for Lustre (or) IBM Spectrum Scale, which provides a shared directory for the grid.

The AWS CloudFormation templates included with the Quick Start automate the following:

  • Deploying SAS Grid into a new VPC
  • Deploying SAS Grid into an existing VPC

You can also use the AWS CloudFormation templates as a starting point for your own implementation.
