What You Need Before You Begin

Before deploying Tableau Server on AWS, you must have the following:

  • An AWS account.

  • An Amazon EC2 key pair.

    For more information, see Amazon EC2 Key Pairs and Windows Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Windows Instances at the AWS website.

  • A Tableau Server trial license or product key.

    • For a standalone deployment, you can use a 14-day trial version of Tableau Server, which doesn’t require the use of a product key. After 14 days, you’ll need to purchase a license, or use a subscription license.

    • For a cluster-based deployment, you need a user-based server license (which covers all authorized users of Tableau Server), a core-based server license (with a minimum of 16 cores), or a subscription license. To obtain a product key, contact sales.

  • (Optional) A domain managed by Amazon Route 53.

  • (Optional) An SSL certificate managed by AWS Certificate Manager in the region where you are deploying Tableau Server.

  • Storage on Amazon EC2 instance (a general purpose SSD (gp2) is recommended)

  • (Optional) An Elastic IP address if you aren't using ELB or Amazon Route53.
