A New Whitepaper for IT

By Ellie Fields September 12, 2012

Looking for the essential overview of Tableau for IT Managers? Last month we published Tableau for the Enterprise: An Overview for IT. In it you can find answers to questions such as:

How many authentication models does Tableau support?
A: Three: Microsoft Active Directory, local authentication, and trusted tickets. (p.5)

Can Tableau Server run on a Virtual Machine or in the cloud?
A: Yes. (p.5).

Does Tableau Server connect directly to data or work in-memory?
A: Either, depending on what you need. (p. 8-9)

There are also great diagrams to help you understand Tableau's architecture, metadata model, and more.

In fact, this whitepaper is loaded with information that you could use for a rousing night of Tableau Trivia. A full list of topics covered is:

  • Tableau Architecture
  • Deployment Models
  • Security
  • Scalability
  • System Administration
  • Data Strategy
  • Metadata Management
  • Mobile Deployment

I would like to read the white paper, but am unable to download it. I've tried it from IE 9 & Chrome 20. I keep getting thrown back to the same form for download. Anyone else have this problem?
