Running Tableau on S3 is a Slow, Complex, Multi-Step Process

Amazon S3 has quickly become indispensable for many modern applications. It provides unlimited scalability, reliability, a simple API, and it is unbeatable in terms of cost. For architects S3 is an important tool that complements other data infrastructure - it’s where your data “lands” initially, and then later is “picked up” for processing, then moved into RDS, EMR, or your Hadoop cluster.

If you’re using Tableau, then one of the end points of your data pipelines is a relational database like RDS, because that’s how Tableau works best. But think about all the steps it took to get the data from S3 into Tableau and the hands of your analysts.

What if you could run Tableau on S3 directly, with an interactive experience, and without making any compromises in functionality? You could dramatically reduce the time and complexity to work with your data, and shrink your costs along the way. That’s Dremio.
