How 1E and Tableau spun up a 5000-machine company in one week

Read More

One of the world’s most renown companies, Tableau plays host to industry events to educate users as well as encourage potential new customers to use their software. At their event in 2015, they utilized 2,500 laptops. In 2016, they doubled that number to 5,000 which also doubled their potential problems: managing software.

Challenge

With 5,000 laptops and over 12,000 delegates, any missing file or small software problem becomes massive at scale.

Solution

Nomad was chosen because of it’s advanced peer-to-peer functionality as well as the reliable performance needed during the event. Says conference manager Gail Miller, “We did initial testing in LA with 500 laptops, installing Tableau and uninstalling Tableau. We were able to do it within three minutes on all the systems.”

Benefits

“Nomad basically allows peer to peer distribution of the content,” confirms Johan Arwidmark CTO of TrueSec and conference attendee, “so that you don’t overload a single file server or distribution point, because without the peer to peer solution you would have to have 40-50 servers spread out through the entire environment to be able to push out content that quickly. But by using peer to peer technology we have a single distribution point and can still leverage all that data.”

“The experience of using Nomad has been fantastic. The ability to deploy over 4,000/5,000 machines quickly and efficiently, without having a massively robust network has been awesome.”
