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.
