Business analytics software company, Tableau, has announced new integrations with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The integrations provide expanded choice for customers as they adopt Cloud analytics solutions. It includes a connector for Amazon Aurora and the launch of Tableau Server listings in AWS marketplace.
The Amazon Aurora connector is Tableau’s third direct connector for AWS that allows visual analytics for AWS database services. Tableau also connects to the Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), which gives customers access to the capabilities of MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, or PostgreSQL relational database management systems running in the AWS Cloud.
AWS vice-president of database services, Anurag Gupta, said Tableau’s ability to connect directly to Amazon Aurora gives customers additional options for answering analytical data questions to drive well-informed business decisions.
“Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible, relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases,” he said.
Tableau also announced the availability of Tableau Server in the AWS Marketplace. According to the company, the new pay-as-you-go option enables organisations to deploy Tableau Server to any AWS region in minutes.
The company said its user bundles for AWS Marketplace, available in 10, 25, 50, and 100 seat configurations, can be launched to run on optimally sized Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Instance types giving users flexibility based on the scope of their analytics project.
Tableau vice-president of product management, Dan Jewett, said, “whether an organisation is looking to deploy an always-on, full-service platform, or if they want to pay only for the time they use on a project-by-project basis, companies now have more ways to explore, analyse, and collaborate with their data with the security, speed, and ease-of-use they expect from Tableau.”
