    TDE on Separate Server?

    Sara Lemme

      I just returned from a meeting with the IT security team at our institution and am trying to figure out some ways to meet our institution's security requirements with Tableau Server.  The main request is to separate the underlying data for the visualizations into a server separate from from the Tableau Server that the end users regularly access.


      Is it possible to have one Tableau Server that houses Tableau Extract (.tde) files, and a second Tableau Server with visualizations that point to those files?


      Alternatively, can Tableau Extract (.tde) files be stored in any type of second server (Oracle, SQL, etc.) with a separate Tableau Server that has visualizations that are then connected live to those files?
