- Customers are currently limited by memory capacity, which restricts the volume of datasets that can be stored close to the CPU, thereby limiting the potential to improve query response times. Expanding the memory footprint to overcome this challenge is often cost-prohibitive for customers.
- With 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory (Memory Mode), SAS can take advantage of larger available memory capacity per system, while making it a more cost-effective solution for customers.
- Customers can now keep multiple large datasets used for gradient boosting models in memory, with little to no performance degradation, and at a reduced cost (see chart showing up to 18% performance improvement for a given cost).1234
Better performance at similar cost - SAS customers can benefit from improved analytics response times, with better TCO2, and while meeting performance expectations.
