If  there are companies out there making a decision to run SAS products  and wanted to choose a database  or wondered if Oracle Exadata is a good fit ?
Consider this. SAS runs their Cloud solutions on Oracle Exadata. SAS Solutions OnDemand   did talk at Oracle  OpenWorld 2013. They were happy with ROI, performance, scalability and simplicity of provisioning. 
Interesting info from the presentation slides is the ability of SAS specific sqls are able to make use of exadata features to improve performance.
