Tableau Distributed Server Installations and High Availability

Course Outline: This hands-on course is designed for Tableau server administrators to understand how to perform multi-node installations Tableau Server and why it is important to do so. The most basic way to run Tableau Server is to install a single node on a server. This course will provide the administrator more options on how to install Tableau based on their organization’s needs and resources. Adding additional nodes and configuring Tableau for high availability is also achieved.

This is a single-day course

Concepts we cover:

  • Single-node installation—This type of installation is reasonable for testing, running trials, and for environments that can handle occasional downtime and system availability due to lack of redundancy. All server processes are running on a single machine
  • Distributed installation—This type of installation is also called a multi-node installation and requires multiple computers so you can install and run server processes on those distributed nodes.
  • Highly available (HA) installation—An HA installation of Tableau Server is a special type of multi-node installation with a minimum of three nodes and multiple instances of key processes (the Repository, File Store/Data Engine (Hyper), and Coordination Service) on different computers
