SAS On Cloud Innovations from Core Compete
Core Compete is committed to helping customers experience SAS on modern cloud platforms. We have worked closely with our ecosystem partners to create powerful accelerators to deploy SAS on-cloud
Core Compete collaborated with SAS R&D and AWS to deliver the SAS Grid QuickStart 2.0. It launches a fully automated end-to-end SAS® Grid environment (AWS infrastructure and SAS Grid software) that is ready for use. It leverages IBM Spectrum Scale file storage (now available on AWS) for SAS Grid shared storage in addition to Lustre storage. This enables SAS customers to deploy SAS Grid in a matter of hours what has typically taken months to deploy.

Core Compete collaborated with SAS, Google and Intel to benchmark the performance of SAS on Intel® Optane™ technology to demonstrate how these platforms can be combined to deliver high performance for SAS Viya workloads.
We demonstrated that significant performance gains can be achieved on this architecture while significantly reducing the costs of cloud computing by leveraging the right instances on Google Cloud Platform and tuning the system for maximum performance.
Core Compete collaborated with Microsoft, SAS and Hortonworks to do the first ever Azure cloud-based SAS Grid for Hadoop deployment. This enables our client to natively leverage the power of Hadoop while working in a SAS environment, leveraging in-database processing. SAS co-exists on the Hadoop cluster significantly reducing the cost of the cloud infrastructure.
