I need to setup tableau server but I came to know that it requires tableau desktop for publishing data sources. As my data source has 100 GB+ data would I require a machine for tableau desktop which is capable of taking whole data as input?. I am asking this because whenever I try to add a filter while creating a data source it imports all the records and this takes too much of time. So do I need to install tableau desktop on such a machine which has a configuration similar to server in order to locally extract data.
If I am wrong please answer my question of publishing large data source directly to tableau server with the help of tableau desktop. I am using linux server for hosting tableau server and I have tableau desktop on a macbook and I use athena as a data source.
Any help would be appreciated.
Great question! I'd suggest you looking into 'empty extracts'. Here's an article that explains the concept, but if you search for that term, you'll find plenty more reference.
Hope this helps!
