Start by looking in the SAS Companion for your system. There
might also be a book for your system; for MVS, try Michael
Raithel's book, available from SAS Institute (and other fine
technical booksellers everywhere).
Also, look in past SUGI Proceedings; papers have been presented on
various architectures. The past few years are available online
Click on the links in the left frame; look in the index for those
years which have them, and in the Systems Architecture sections.
You didn't tell us what kind of workstations and servers you are
using, so it's difficult to make specific recommendations.
