SAS, a leader in business intelligence, announced plans to deliver SAS Intelligence Storage with SAS 9.1. SAS Intelligence Storage is an open, flexible platform that provides a variety of storage options to ensure optimal performance of business intelligence and analytic intelligence applications while keeping the cost of ownership and maintenance under control, and being open and easy to administer. Early adopters of SAS Intelligence Storage have experienced performance gains of as much as 30 percent over earlier releases.

Traditionally IT managers have focused their storage strategy on the timely and reliable collection of data. This focus resulted in the adoption of relational databases, which were designed and tuned to enable the efficient and reliable collection of data and processing large numbers of small transactions, such as banking ATM transactions and individual customer sales. Relational architecture is optimized for entering one transaction at a time, with more and more emphasis placed on the reliability of the data collection process at the price of performance. SAS Intelligence Storage is designed and optimized specifically for business intelligence and analytic applications.
