By migrating SAS Viya to IBM Cloud, Vast Edge empowers businesses with an agile environment, multi-tenant solution for servers, along with features that yield accelerated insights, cut costs, & maximizes resilience. Vast Edge's solutions are designed by following a bottom-up approach to address the key requirements of SAS workloads. Backed by top-notch I/O and memory bandwidth, Vast Edge's cloud migration of SAS Analytics is aimed to accelerate the overall performance of the system.
SAS Analytics requires a comprehensive need of compute instances for its smooth implementation of services like data discovery, model development and operational analytics. Vast Edge's SAS Migration on IBM Cloud offers full-stack solution including servers, storage and cloud orchestration that can be scaled dynamically to cope up with resource requirements. Benefits of SAS Viya migration on IBM by Vast Edge include:
Vast Edge leverages IBM Power System's capabilities for smooth running of SAS Analytics. Power System orchestrates 1.8X larger memory bandwidth and 2X better I/O bandwidth compared to the older processor versions and has the architecture that fulfills the requirements of SAS Viya. Some of the recommendations for the hassle-free running of SAS Viya on IBM POWER9 servers by Vast Edge:
Vast Edge's deployed server provisions enhanced cache, storage, and interconnect bandwidths. It smoothly integrates with large memory capacity and supports the in-memory database. POWER9 processors by IBM offers high data bandwidth that is one of the best in the class features.
Our cloud integration experts use fast storage options like SSDs and NVMe devices to provide a faster I/O speed. With this fast storage devices, the business can access the systems concurrently to enhance the throughput.
Vast Edge configures a single processor core to interact with multiple tenancies to command instructions dynamically. With simultaneous multithreading, POWER9 processors can deploy up to eight hardware threads. Additionally, Vast Edge configures SAS Viya in a way that it automatically determines parallelization based on the number of available hardware threads.
Vast Edge configures multiple modes to leverage the most out of the cloud architecture. You can manually set the frequency performance to the turbo mode for best performance.
In case of multi-socket servers, systems face non-uniform memory access (NUMA) effects, and it can have an adverse effect on the performance of servers. As a good practice, Vast Edge checks the NUMA nodes assignment in each partition to ensure optimal memory assignment. Further, we reconfigure the memory assignment to improve the performance of the partition.
Our solution dynamically increases the maximum transmission unit size in case multiple internode networking activities takes place. It reduces the RX error count and improves network performance.
