$70 Million Cloud Computing Facility by SAS

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

Cloud computing this is word which might look strange to some people as they are not aware of this methodology . Cloud computing is Internet ("cloud") based development and use of computer technology ("computing").It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualised resources are provided as a service over the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.

Cloud computing users can avoid capital expenditure (CapEx) on hardware, software and services, rather paying a provider only for what they use

Well SAS, a business analytics software and services company, is going to set up a $70 million, 38,000 sq.ft cloud computing facility to provide the additional data-handling capacity needed to expand SAS’ OnDemand offerings and hosted solutions.

“This project is proof that, despite the down economy, SAS continues to grow and innovate,” said Jim Goodnight, CEO, SAS. “The growing demand by our customers for hosted solutions has given us this opportunity to invest even further in North Carolina and the Cary community.” for desiging this project, more than 1000 people are involved and is built on LEED(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards

The facility will include two 10,000-square-foot server farms. Server Farm 1 is anticipated to be on-line mid-2010 and support growth for three to five years. Server Farm 2 will be constructed as a shell and will be populated with mechanical and electrical infrastructure once Server Farm 1 reaches 80 per cent capacity.
