What to Know About Tableau Cloud Migration to Hyperforce

Tableau Cloud is transitioning to Hyperforce, Salesforce’s next-generation infrastructure for the public cloud, in the second half of 2024. This shift promises enhanced security, scalability, and compliance, allowing customers to better manage data residency and adhere to local regulations. Here’s a closer look at what Hyperforce is, the benefits it brings to Tableau Cloud, and how to learn more about this significant upgrade.

What is Hyperforce?

Hyperforce is Salesforce’s advanced infrastructure architecture tailored for the public cloud. It marks a significant technological advancement, enabling applications to perform with greater security and efficiency. Unlike traditional hardware-dependent setups, Hyperforce is built on a foundation of code, allowing seamless deployment across global regions. This flexibility ensures effective data residency management and compliance with local laws.

This might be a good time to consider moving to Tableau Cloud. Shifting workloads to software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions has been an increasing priority for organizations for years. As we build for a world facing new economic challenges and uncertainty, executives have increasingly looked to Tableau Cloud, our SaaS offering, to help them develop their own competitive advantages, easily scale, and maximize efficiency. Flexera’s 2023 State of the Cloud reports that 51% of data is now in the public cloud, and nearly half of their survey respondents indicated their organization plans to move from on-premises software to SaaS. More and more organizations are turning to cloud solutions to reduce operational costs and drive their own digital transformation.

Benefits of Tableau Cloud on Hyperforce

When Tableau Cloud transitions to Hyperforce, customers will experience immediate benefits while retaining the familiar user experience and functionality. Here’s what to expect:

  • Enhanced Scalability and Security: Hyperforce boosts Tableau Cloud’s scalability and security, providing a robust platform without altering the product’s core features.
  • Seamless Transition: Early adopters, like data.world, confirmed a smooth transition with maintained reliability, performance, and uptime.”It was a pleasure to work with Salesforce to be the first to use Tableau Cloud on Hyperforce. As promised, the experience was seamless. Hyperforce delivered the reliability, performance, and uptime that met and even exceeded our expectations.”
    — Jon Loyens, Chief Data Officer at data.world
  • Feature and Compliance Parity: Tableau Cloud on Hyperforce maintains all existing features and compliance certifications. Additionally, it supports more certifications, such as PCI-DSS and IRAP, and accelerates the acquisition of new certifications.
  • Improved Resiliency: Hyperforce’s architecture includes three availability zones for each region, enhancing resilience against public cloud outages.
  • Regional Expansion: Hyperforce expands Tableau Cloud’s global presence, including a new region in Germany and a planned expansion to Singapore later in 2024.

Leveraging Salesforce Innovations

Hyperforce enables Tableau Cloud to integrate more effectively with Salesforce’s existing innovations and integrations, fostering faster innovation. A notable example is Tableau Cloud Private Connect, which allows secure connections between Tableau Cloud and popular cloud data warehouses and lakes via a private connection, enhancing data transit security.
