This updated Quick Start automatically deploys Tableau Server in a standalone or cluster environment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. With this update, you can deploy on either Linux or Microsoft Windows Server.
Tableau Server is an online solution for sharing, distributing, and collaborating on business intelligence content created in Tableau. With Tableau Server, you can create workbooks and views, dashboards, and data sources in Tableau Desktop, and publish this content to the server.
This Quick Start uses AWS CloudFormation templates to install one of the following architectures:
- Standalone architecture. Installs Tableau Server into your default virtual private cloud (VPC) on an Amazon EC2 m4.4xlarge instance running Microsoft Windows Server, CentOS, or Ubuntu Server.
- Cluster architecture. Installs Tableau Server into a new or existing VPC on at least three Amazon EC2 m4.4xlarge instances running Microsoft Windows Server, CentOS, or Ubuntu Server. This option builds an AWS environment with VPC, subnets, NAT gateways, security groups, bastion host, and other components.
Quick Starts are automated reference deployments that use AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy key technologies on AWS, following AWS best practices.
