    Is this Tableau Infrastructure Good?

    MANOJ PRABHAKAR

      Is this Tableau Infrastructure Good?

       

       

      Our Plan For Production Use -

      Basically We need 3 Servers

       

       

      Tableau Server should be installed in 2 Machines/windows servers

      1 in Staging

      and another 1 in Production

       

      and Tableau Desktop

      Going to install in a single machine for both Development and production purpose

       

      So Totally we have planned to have 3 Machines.

      Is my Setup correct/Good?

      Our DB:MS SQL Server

      OUR Domain:IVR

          • Hi Manoj ,
          • Machines are fine but you should consider Minimum Hardware Recommendations here

           

          SERVER

          Minimum Hardware Requirements

          The computer on which you are installing or upgrading Tableau Server must meet the minimum hardware requirements. If the setup program determines that your computer does not meet the following requirements, you will not be able to install Tableau Server.

          For more information on how the Setup program determines hardware, see Determining Computer Hardware.

          These minimum requirements are appropriate for a computer that you use for prototyping and testing of Tableau Server. They apply to single-node installations and to each computer in a distributed installation.

           

          CPU

          RAM

          Free Disk Space

          Minimum Hardware Requirements

          2-core

          8 GB

          15 GB

          For the requirements:

          • Free disk space is calculated after the Tableau Server Setup program is unzipped. The setup program uses about 1 GB of space. You may need to allocate additional disk space depending on the various factors like whether or not you will be using extracts. For more information, see Disk Space Requirements.
          • Core count is based on "physical" cores. Physical cores can represent actual server hardware or cores on a virtual machine (VM). Hyper-threading is ignored for the purposes of counting cores.

          Minimum Hardware Recommendations

          For production use, the computer on which you install or upgrade Tableau Server should meet or exceed the minimum hardware recommendations. These recommendations are general. Actual system needs for Tableau Server installations can vary based on many factors, including number of users and the number and size of extracts. If the setup program determines that your computer does not meet the following recommendations, you will get a warning, but you can continue with the setup process.

          Install Type

          Processor

          CPU

          RAM

          Free Disk Space

          Single node

          64-bit

          8-core, 2.0 GHz or higher

          32 GB

          50 GB

          Multi-node and enterprise deployments

          Contact Tableau for technical guidance.

          Nodes must meet or exceed the minimum hardware recommendations, except nodes running backgrounder, where 4 cores may be acceptable.

           

           

           

          I am assuming that you have decided to go with the Single node installation

           

          and Tableau Desktop

          Going to install in a single machine for both Development and production purpose---YES ,THAT IS FINE

           

          DESKTOP

           

          According to Tableau's tech specs page, the minimum requirements for running Tableau Desktop are:

          • Microsoft Windows 7 or newer (32-bit and 64-bit)
          • Microsoft Server 2008 R2 or newer.
          • Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Opteron processor or newer.
          • 2 GB memory.
          • 1.5 GB minimum free disk space.
          • 1366 x 768 screen resolution or higher.

           

          Thanks,

          Ritesh

            Hi Manoj,

             

            what about the resources?

             

            Did you get the list with the minimum resources?

            Cheers.
