Business analytics software maker Tableau Software has launched its first European-based data centre in Dublin, Ireland.
“With the opening of our European data centre, we are responding to a desire from customers to choose where they host their data,” said James Eiloart, Vice President of Tableau’s European Operations. “We take our mission to help people see and understand their data very seriously – and it’s a global mission. We will continue to invest more into both our capabilities and infrastructure to put analytics into the hands of anyone with data questions.”
The new data centre is available to both existing and new Tableau Online customers, wherever they are located. Existing customers can choose to migrate to their data to the Dublin-based data centre, while new customers can select their preferred location – either North America or Europe – when setting up their Tableau Online site.
Tableau has more than 35,000 customers in more than 150 countries. More than 3,000 active customer accounts are using Tableau’s advanced cloud capabilities with Tableau Online. Fifty percent of these accounts are located outside the U.S. The launch of a European-based data centre is in response to its continued international growth and customer demand.
“Ensuring flexibility has always been central to Tableau’s mission,” said Eiloart. “From data solutions and deployment options, to data discovery paths, we are now enabling customers to choose where they want their cloud analytics data stored. We’ve always been committed to empowering people in their data analytics journey and this is an important milestone in that journey.”
The new data centre is ISO27001 certified and provides a disaster recovery location in Munich, Germany to ensure the highest levels of security and quality.
