Anderson Computing Cluster
How can I get SAS on my computer?
SAS is available for access by any member of the AU community through the Virtual Computing Lab (VCL). More information on VCL.
SAS is available for free installation on any AU owned computers. Please contact us by phone (202-885-3862) or email to request an installation.
How can I get support using SAS for research or for class?
One-on-one assistance (drop-in during regular hours, or schedule an appointment)

If you have extremely large data sets, SAS can be configured to access the storage space (but not the computing power) of AU's High Performance Cluster. For more information about this option, contact us at email@example.com.
