    Tableau Server data source, live x extraction

    Victor Martins

      Hi guys!

       

      Recently my company started migrating from database connections to tableau server connection in all of our dashboards data sources, while we were doing it a question surfaced:

       

      How does Tableau handle extracts x live connections on Tableau Server data sources?

       

      From my knowledge, all of the published data source are stored locally on the server HD, so if I set my dashboard connection to a extract of the published data source will it duplicate that piece of data on the server?

       

      Thanks!
