You'll need to install the MySQL drivers on whichever machine you're running Tableau Desktop, but once those are installed it should be possible to connect to a MySQL database that's hosted on another machine or in the cloud.
You'll also need the MySQL hostname or IP Address + a valid username/password to connect. You can see more details on connecting to MySQL here: MySQL
Hope this helps!
