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 helps you incrementally scale your computing infrastructure over time as the number of users and the size of data grow. It also provides rolling maintenance and upgrades without any disruption to your users.
This Quick Start bootstraps the infrastructure for a SAS Grid cluster and installs the SAS Grid software, which includes SAS Grid Control Server, SAS Grid nodes, SAS Metadata Server, and SAS mid-tier components. For storage, you can choose Cloud Edition for Lustre or IBM Spectrum Scale.
