Self-Deploy Tableau Server on AWS in a Distributed Environment

If you want to run Tableau Server in a distributed environment, also known as a cluster, you need to launch three or more Amazon EC2 instances of the same type and capacity to your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and configure them as worker nodes.

The following scenario assumes that you have three Amazon EC2 instances with Tableau Server installed on each instance. One instance is configured as the primary node, and the other two instances are configured as worker nodes.

The following steps show how to install and deploy Tableau Server on a cluster of three Amazon EC2 instances in a highly available and scalable configuration.

Step 1: Create a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

(Optional) Step 2: Create an AWS Directory Service for the VPC

Step 3: Deploy Three Amazon EC2 Instances

Step 4: Install and Configure Tableau Server

Step 5: Create a Load Balancer for the Tableau Server Cluster
