Drastically Reduce the Cost of Splunk with Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

Presented by

Matthew Bottomley, Splunk and David Axler - Cloudian

About this talk

When Splunk launched Splunk Cloud they re-architected the way the Software interacts with its run time infrastructure. Splunk Cloud uses AWS EC2 for high performance indexer run time workload. In order to make this architecture efficient and optimised for a hybrid cloud approach, Splunk needed to keep the EC2 instance as small as possible. To do this they created SmartStore and Cache Manager. These technologies automate the tiering of Storage capacity from high-performance high-cost EC2 to high-capacity and low-cost S3. Join this webinar to learn how you can deploy Cloudian HyperStore in your Data Centre to optimise your own on-premise Splunk Environment to achieve the same performance and cost optimisation. Splunk SmartStore® and Cloudian HyperStore® together manage automatic data tiering between Indexers and Cloudian HyperStore within your hybrid cloud infrastructure. Benefits include: •Releasing Splunk Indexers to ingest more data from more sources •Decouple storage and compute layers •Elastically scale compute on-demand for search and indexing workloads •Grow storage independently to accommodate retention requirements •Save cost with more flexible storage options In this webinar Splunk, Cloudian and Somerford Associates will be demonstrating a fully functional Splunk SmartStore with Cloudian HyperStore solution, starting from setup all the way to searching for data residing on remote Cloudian HyperStore Key Take-Aways: •How to lower TCO for Storage by up to 60% by Decoupling compute and storage and scale storage for longer retention and indexers on performance demand. •How to reduce indexer footprint for warm/cold data. •How to increase performance and scale using SmartStore and HyperStore in combination •How to recover from Failures fast. Copies of data and protection are offloaded to remote storage therefore recovery and rebalance are faster.
