    SAS vs Tableau and a petabyte of data?

    Michael Cristiani

      Loved ones,


      Today Rupert Stechman III tweeted about crunching a petabyte of data on an 8GB Mac using Tableau inside a Windows VM (VMWare).  Anyone want to try this using PC SAS?  It would be interesting. Tim, Robert, Brad, anyone?
