EXASOL launches plug-and-play turbo solution in North American market to accelerate Tableau data visualizations

Tableau Conference, Las Vegas, 19 October 2015 – For users of Tableau that are struggling with poor performance levels from their back-end databases, EXASOL has launched a plug-and-play acceleration solution that dramatically speeds up front-end data visualizations in Tableau.

Known as the Tableau Turbo by EXASOL and with software license pricing starting at just $12,000, EXASOL will showcase the solution this week at the 8th annual Tableau conference (#data15) which is taking place at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas from 19 to 23 October, where EXASOL is a megabyte sponsor and exhibitor at stand 623.

Through a series of demonstrations at the conference, 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.

As businesses become increasingly 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. EXASOL has developed a solution to this problem by adding an acceleration layer between existing database technology and Tableau.

“Tableau is designed to help businesses see and understand their data quickly, but if you can’t interact with your data easily and fast due to the poor performance delivered by your back-end database, it doesn’t matter how good the front-end visualization tool promises to be. That’s why we developed the Tableau Turbo by EXASOL,” explains Aaron Auld, CEO, EXASOL.

Available in three configurations as a software-only proposition (100 GB, 500 GB and 2 TB), 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.
