Sure. To save an index after constructing it, you can call save(index, "/path/to/index"). To load it, call open(index, "/path/to/index"). The path must be given as a C style string, so if you're using a SeqAn String, please use toCString() to convert it.
We had some thoughts on parallel suffix array construction as well as parallel direct bwt construction. However, ERA is a suffix tree construction algorithm, so it wouldn't be useful to construct enhanced suffix arrays directly.
