SAS® has been running on servers since the late 1960s. Despite the emergence of PCs and workstation-class machines, SAS still reigns supreme on the server. With the introduction of the SAS platform, the number and types of servers have grown exponentially. As any good student of the DATA step will attest, knowing what SAS is doing is a critically important step in debugging and authoring efficient programs.
In this presentation, we provide a visual tour of SAS. We cover what SAS is doing, how it works, which server is doing what, when the operating system plays a role, how security functions, and what happens to your data through this entire process.Serving SAS® (2.8 MB)
