Everything's bigger and faster in Texas: EXASOL speeds up Tableau vizzes at Tableau Conference 2016 in Austin

Tableau Conference, Austin, TX, 7 November 2016 – Things may be bigger in Texas, but where Tableau data visualizations are concerned, they’re also about to get a whole lot faster. This week, EXASOL returns to Tableau’s annual conference (#data16) to show Tableau users who are struggling with poor performance from back-end databases just how easy it is to speed up their front-end visualizations.

Taking place at the Austin Convention Center in downtown Austin, TX, from 7 to 10 November, EXASOL will exhibit at the conference as a kilobyte sponsor at stand 214 in hall 1. It is here where through a series of demonstrations, users of Tableau will be able to see how easy it is to analyze and visualize billions of data records in just seconds, and how they can take their use of Tableau to a whole new level and get a much faster insight into their data – through just a simple few clicks and drag-and-drop actions in Tableau.

Known as Tableau Turbo by EXASOL and with pricing starting at just $12,000, Tableau users can now avail themselves of a solution that adds an acceleration layer between existing database systems or data sources and Tableau, so that users no longer have to put up with poor performance. More specifically, Tableau Turbo by EXASOL sits alongside a company’s existing database, mart or warehouse, acts as an acceleration layer and speeds up BI, reporting and data visualizations, so Tableau users can do the following:

  • Analyze and visualize large and complex data volumes in real-time
  • Dramatically accelerate the speed of reporting, analysis and data exploration
  • Eliminate buffering and waiting times - even with a live connection
  • Supercharge Tableau and focus on business matters, not on fixing database issues
  • Integrate multiple data sources, including structured and unstructured data from systems such as Hadoop


“As businesses continue on their journey to become fully data-driven, the ability to analyze data and act upon insights is crucial to remaining competitive in the market. Front-end visualization tools such as Tableau allow users to see and understand their data, but BI and reporting technology can be let down by the latency of the underlying databases where the data is resident. That’s why we developed the Tableau Turbo by EXASOL,” explains Aaron Auld, CEO, EXASOL. “We look forward to attending this year’s Tableau Conference and engaging with yet more Tableau users to help them get more from their data and visualizations than ever before.”

Available in three configurations as a software-only proposition (100GB, 500GB and 2TB), the Tableau Turbo by EXASOL is powered by EXASOL’s in-memory analytic database, which delivers the most powerful engine for Tableau, helping it bring data to life within the shortest of timescales. It supercharges Tableau, letting organizations analyze huge data volumes in real time, which allows them to focus on their business, not on fixing performance issues. Moreover, now users can integrate multiple data sources including structured and unstructured data from systems such as Hadoop.
