Learn about our deployment pricing

Better visibility for efficient Server management

Get the most out of your Windows or Linux deployment, through enhanced agent-based monitoring with the Tableau Resource Monitoring Tool. The Resource Monitoring Tool offers deep insights into the health and performance of a Tableau Server cluster by parsing and analyzing the logs generated by overall Server usage and combining that with monitoring of physical system usage (CPU Usage, RAM, Disk I/O etc.). Threshold based monitoring helps you stay on top of the health of your deployment. With increased visibility into hardware utilization, VizQL sessions, data source queries, backgrounder workloads and more, it’s easier to manage and precisely tune the performance of your server.

Simplified content migration

Simplify and streamline your workbook and data source content workflows with the Tableau Content Migration Tool. Manage the movement of content between projects, sites or Tableau Server environments. Build your migration plan visually, and then set it to a schedule. You can remap data sources, and perform other workbook transformations.

Leverage cloud services for better reliability and scalability

For large deployments hosted on AWS or Azure, customers can choose to host their Tableau Server metadata repository externally, with Amazon RDS Postgres or Azure Database for PostgreSQL. This approach provides increased scalability and high availability for organizations with large amounts of Tableau metadata.

Optimize workloads

Optimize the performance of your deployment by customizing which nodes process background jobs such as extract refreshes and subscriptions. By isolating these workloads to specific nodes, it's easier to scale your deployment to the needs of your organization.

KMS Integration for encrypted extracts

For data extract encryption at rest, we integrate with Amazon KMS. For existing AWS KMS customers, this capability helps you centralize your key management efforts and unlocks more advanced security and compliance scenarios.

External file store support

With Tableau Server Management, you can leverage network storage devices for backup snapshots which significantly reduces the time required to perform a back up. You can also use this capability to streamline your deployment topology by centralizing your file store, eliminating the need to run file stores on multiple nodes in a Tableau Server cluster.
