Note for SAS support.
Due to the nature of the virtualization environments, SAS does not expect performance equivalence in these environments. Analysis must be done within the customer environment for the specific application(s) to determine the appropriate sizing and configuration of the infrastructure. The customer is responsible for properly configuring their virtual machine and applications for that virtualization environment.

Special Note: In order to run SAS on a Mac operating system, a virtualization software that can support and run a Windows XP Pro or newer must be installed and functional. 

 


Higher purpose. Greater good.
