Once you’ve secured your data and system, you’re ready to scale seamlessly.
To help you manage and scale, we’re building Tableau Services Manager, a comprehensive tool for analyzing, monitoring, and managing Tableau Server. No more remote desktops to perform maintenance or make changes. IT admins will have a one-stop shop, complete with a beautiful web-based application, REST APIs, and a command-line interface.
With this new tool, you’ll be able to make simple topology and configuration changes with no downtime. You’ll also be able to automate tasks using bash or Powershell and integrate with deployment tools like Puppet or Chef. And in the future, you’ll even be able to automatically scale up and down an entire server cluster.
With Tableau Server, you have the flexibility to deploy on-premises, in the cloud, or on a hybrid infrastructure.
Tableau Server is already supported on all three major cloud platforms, namely Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. But we are taking it one step further by integrating deeply with native cloud services on these platforms.
Soon, you’ll be able to store your backups in a reliable, low-cost cloud-storage service like Amazon S3. You’ll be able to replace the built-in Postgres repository with Amazon RDS Postgres, giving you superior reliability and scalability as you pay only for what you use.
You’ll be able to manage Tableau Server as you would all your cloud resources using AWS CloudWatch. And we’ll deliver sample AWS CloudFormation templates with best practices to make it easy for you to deploy and configure Tableau Server securely in a cloud environment.
We’re starting with AWS, and we will bring you deeper integration to other platforms in the future.
And soon you’ll also have your choice of operating systems. You’ll be able to deploy Tableau Server on Windows or Linux. We know that many of you rely on Linux to run your enterprise deployments, and we’re working to make your deployment even more flexible.
