Please note that for members who prefer to view our site in 'mobile style' on a computer, we have an option to switch to 'Mobile View' while on computer also. You can find this option at the bottom of the index page just above the donation chest icon.

Please Note - in mobile-view, as of now, "basic blue color scheme" is the only standard theme at the moment - so you might see "green changing to blue" while in 'mobile-view' or seeing the site on a mobile.

Enjoy! :)

The goal of cloud computing is to apply traditional super computing, or high-performance computing power, normally used by military and research facilities, to perform tens of trillions of computations per second, in consumer-oriented applications such as financial portfolios, to deliver personalized information, to provide data storage or to power large, immersive computer games.
To do this, cloud computing uses networks of large groups of servers typically running low-cost consumer PC technology with specialized connections to spread data-processing chores across them. This shared IT infrastructure contains large pools of systems that are linked together. Often, virtualization techniques are used to maximize the power of cloud computing.

SAS is driven by SAS programs, which define a sequence of operations to be performed on data stored as tables. Although non-programmer graphical user interfaces to SAS exist; these GUIs are most often merely a front-end that automates or facilitates the generation of SAS programs. The functionalities of SAS components are intended to be accessed via application programming interfaces, in the form of statements and procedures.
A SAS program has four major parts:

  • The DATA step
  • Procedure steps (effectively, everything that is not enclosed in a DATA step)
  • A macro language, a metaprogramming language
  • ODS (Output Delivery System) statements, which direct any output or data sets created by DATA or procedure steps to any of various file types, and apply styles and templates to the output.
