About this talk

Is your Splunk deployment or upgrade going to be hosted on bare metal, a virtualized platform, or the cloud? The cloud has often been chosen for agility and flexibility, but on-prem deployments are experiencing a resurgence. Data security concerns and the desire to bring the analysis engine as close to the data source as possible are key influencers in the on-prem trend. In these cases, bare metal deployments are commonly chosen due to cost or complexity of hypervisors, however with bare metal Splunk loses out on all the quality of life improvements users have come to expect with virtualization. This webinar explores the benefits of virtualizing Splunk on the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform, taking the complexity out of managing virtualized infrastructure for Splunk, allowing Splunk experts to spend more time extracting insight from data. Nutanix allows Splunk to take full advantage of server virtualization without the limitations of other solutions and combines this with the agility and flexibility of public clouds. By ensuring data is accessed locally by all Splunk indexers, Nutanix eliminates the “I/O Blender” effect that can plague conventional, bare metal infrastructure. Register to see how to architect the best environment for Splunk with deployments that can scale to handle increasing data ingest rates and ever-increasing expectations for high performance. Learn useful tips on how to fully leverage the Nutanix distributed storage fabric, with details on data tiering, EC-X erasure coding, disk balancing, and more. We’ll also show how Splunk on Nutanix ensures: - The ability to ingest GBs of data per day - Quick search capabilities for mission critical applications - Ability to support growth in data ingest rates - Ease of deployment and management - Self-contained deployments for data security and privacy
