Amazon Web Services
Amazon Web Services has been the dominant leader in the public cloud space since the beginning. Tableau integrates with AWS services to empower enterprises to maximize the return on your organization’s data and to leverage their existing technology investments. It all starts with direct connections to Amazon data sources including Amazon Redshift (including Redshift Spectrum), Amazon Aurora, Amazon Athena and Amazon EMR as well as many outside data sources such as SQL Server, Cloudera Hadoop, and numerous Cloud apps like Google Analytics and Salesforce.
Thanks to these market leading integrations, Tableau is the natural choice of platform for analyzing the data stored in Amazon’s data sources. Beyond this, Tableau provides the depth and breadth of capabilities to ensure that data can be confidently deployed across the entire enterprise. Tableau Server runs seamlessly in Amazon’s cloud infrastructure so the customers who prefer to deploy all of their applications inside of Amazon Web Services have a complete solution offering from Tableau.
Optimizing Tableau and Amazon Redshift for Better Performance
Tableau and Amazon Redshift are integrated out-of-the-box, meaning you can connect to your data warehouse with minimal effort. Given this, it’s important to understand how to optimize when integrating the two together, as doing so can yield considerable performance gains and ultimately shorten deployment cycles.
This paper introduces infrastructure advice, performance tests and measurements, as well as tips and hints to make the joint solution more efficient and performant.See how Tableau and Redshift are integrated
