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.

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 organizations that prefer to deploy applications on Amazon Web Services have a complete solution offering from Tableau.
