Four days to create a publicly available data dashboard

Let’s take a look at the architecture

  • We needed this project to be secure by design, so we used an AWS Web Application Firewall (AWS WAF) to protect against attacks.
  • Tableau recommend using an elastic load balancer in front of your server nodes, which is simple to set up in AWS.
  • We also set up some simple monitoring to avoid redirecting to nodes that are down.
  • We have three EC2 instances: the Tableau Primary Server and two additional nodes.
  • We used Amazon S3 to source the existing data for our dashboards and Amazon Athena to create a database that Tableau can use.
  • We also used Amazon S3 to store Tableau backups and to log file snapshots, both of which can be large.
