Seamlessly deploy, integrate & scale
Your BI tool should not dictate your data and analytics strategy. Choose Tableau and deploy where you want, on-premises, public cloud or SaaS. Connect to the data you have, wherever it’s stored. Scale fluidly as your business grows. And easily share insights with the right people – whether they sit within your organisation or not.
Deploy wherever you want: on Windows or Linux, on-premises or in the public cloud – or choose our fully managed service. However you deploy, Tableau will integrate with your preferred technology vendors. Reuse your existing data infrastructure to cut costs and timelines. Tableau fits into your existing people and process workflows, with minimal retraining and onboarding required. Tableau has direct connectors optimised for all major database and data application platforms, as well as advanced analytics integration with R and Python.
Fast to deploy
Tableau is the only analytics platform you can fully deploy to thousands of users in less than a day. Choose Tableau Cloud and your users can be analysing, sharing and collaborating in mere minutes. With Tableau Server you can install, configure and provision users in less than an hour. Download a Tableau Server trial and see for yourself just how fast and easy it is to deploy.
Whether you want to share analytics with internal users, external contractors or the public at large, we have the platform and tools you need. Embedding Tableau analytics can be done easily in SharePoint, custom HTML portals and other applications for secure access by any authorised user. Our extensive APIs let you create custom-tailored experiences directly in the applications and workflows where people spend their time and need analytics.
Scale up and out
Size your deployment for today's needs, then easily scale up or out as your usage expands. Transition to newer hardware easily or add more nodes for increased redundancy and capacity. Our licensing is designed to give you the most flexible scaling experience; add capacity by adding user licences or by adding more hardware and CPU cores. Tableau Server can support up to a hundred users per core and scales linearly.
Tableau Server scalability
Tableau is the mission-critical key to an organisation's modern enterprise analytics platform. It is essential for enterprise architects and IT leaders to understand how Tableau Server scales with data, content and users. Furthermore, deploying and integrating with diverse and heterogeneous enterprise IT platforms is becoming the only way to support the current and future analytical needs of the business. This whitepaper provides a deep dive into Tableau’s architecture and how it scales with increasing workloads. It also demonstrates how the performance of Tableau Server 10.5 compares with earlier versions.
