Data visualization only?

Does data studio have internal storage where it imports data from data sources or it is a data visualization only where data sits in the data source?

Hi, AI M,

Although still in its infancy, DS360 is primarily a data vis tool, and as such does not have the capability of data storage. It's not a replacement for something like Tableau, which does store data. From this site:, DS360 does integrate seamlessly with other Google products, like Sheets and BQ.

Hope this helps.
