AWS provides a reliable, scalable, secure, and highly performing infrastructure for the most demanding web applications—an infrastructure that matches IT costs with customer traffic patterns in real time.

As an enterprise business intelligence platform, Tableau Server provides comprehensive and robust capabilities for all aspects of business intelligence. These capabilities are quick and easy to deploy, and require minimal , if any, customizations.

  • AWS provides security features that Tableau Server can use to protect your environment, including Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, Security Groups, AWS Identity and AWS Direct Connect.
  • Tableau Server is architected to scale up with more CPU cores and memory, and scale out when you add servers. You can immediately deploy a single-server deployment on AWS and build redundancy with additional servers.
  • You can use Elastic Load Balancing to distribute requests across multiple gateways in a Tableau Server cluster.
  • To configure for high availability, you can run a failover cluster plus an additional computer as the backup primary for your primary Tableau Server.

Follow the best practices and guidelines provided to achieve optimal performance, availability, and reliability.
