Tableau Offers Analytics Platform on Amazon Web Services
Tableau Software has announced that Tableau Online, the company’s fastest growing product with over 5,000 customer accounts, is now available on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
Tableau Online is a fully managed SaaS analytics platform that lets organizations of any size deploy analytics, on any device, with no infrastructure to manage.
According to the company, it provides a scalable way for organizations to enable people to connect, blend and instantly analyze live or extracted data from on premises and cloud databases such as Amazon Redshift and Teradata, applications such as Salesforce and Google Analytics, and data in spreadsheets stored in computers or online.
Tableau has made it “virtually seamless” to deploy Tableau Server in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and continued building optimized connectors with the AWS data sources most important to the customers such as Amazon Aurora and Amazon EMR, said Andrew Beers, chief development officer at Tableau, noting that AWS as an option for Tableau Online customers is “a natural evolution.”
Tableau Online is available as a free trial at www.tableau.com/products/cloud-bi. To run Tableau Online on AWS, simply select “North America – North Virginia, USA” under “Pick Your Site Location.”
