    VMware vCenter performance data in Tableau

    Dawood Shanuvash

      Can Tableau be configured to receive VMware vCenter performance data so that we can do data visualization using of performance metrics of vCenter? If yes how to connect Tableau to vCenter?

          vCenter stores all of its data in a database. They support DB2, Oracle, and SQL Server. So, you'll first need to work with your systems team to understand where that database resides and obtain read-only access to it. Once you have that, you can use Tableau's built-in connectors to connect to the database and extract your data.
