Running SAS at GWDG

SAS (Education Analytical Suite) and JMP are available at our following servers:

SAS 9.4 at 64-bit Linux compute server “gwdu100.gwdg.de” (39 cores + 900 GB RAM). Remote access from GoeNET only with XServer, like XWin32, is possible. Access needs a special registration.
SAS 9.4 at 64-bit Windows 2008 terminal server “gwd-wintsbio.top.gwdg.de” (32 Cores + 128 GB RAM). Remote access from GoeNET only with your local Windows desktop via RDP. Access needs a special registration. SAS IML Studio 14.3, SAS Enterprise guide 7.1, and SAS Studio 3.7 are available there too.
Access from outside of GoeNET is possible via VPN or - in case of Linux server gwdu100 - via login from server login.gwdg.de (using command: ssh -Y gwdu100.gwdg.de) which can be connected world-wide. In both cases Education Analytical Suite of SAS is installed.

Manuals, Courses, Introductions

The complex and powerful software package is not self-explaining and an introduction is strongly recommended.
Members and students of the university may ask your institute or your faculty for specific introduction to SAS or consulting-hours at university. Some institutes at the University of Göttingen serves you with courses.
Numbers of books, manuals and tutorials to SAS are available most dealing with specific topics and applications.
As a matter of course SAS Inc. sells courses and workshops but these are usually too expensive for our community.
