In 2013, Tableau established the recommendation of eight cores for every 1000 Tableau Server users. Yet, admins continued to ask the age old question, "How many users can an eight core REALLY support?" What if we told you that *our* answer was 3000 users on a single eight core? You'll hear how, with minimal hardware and no budget, we grew a thriving Tableau community of 3000 over three years time. We'll show you how we managed our environment then, what it looks like today, and how we're planning for tomorrow. But our answer isn't just about hardware. Since that time, our community has grown to over 7000 strong. Our team, in contrast, is small: only six people. There is only ONE member focused on Tableau. Zero support tickets. No help desk. We scale more than just cores... we scale people!
