HOW TO ACCELERATE
Pair machine data with
By 2020 42 percent of all data
will be machine generated.
For CIOs and other IT leaders, this
data is a potential gold mine of
analytics and opportunities.
Operational analytics platforms like Splunk make
capturing, analyzing, indexing and visualizing
machine data easy – but their demands for both
performance and scalability make data storage
management and infrastructure challenging.
Enterprises want Splunk’s operational
and security intelligence analytics
to make better decisions that lead
to increased revenue, competitive
advantage, risk protection and more.
Once users see the value of this data,
demand for it grows – quickly.
Splunk is your most powerful asset –
if your storage doesn’t get in the way.
Your company could spend
up to 50% of Splunk project costs
on data storage.
OR, you could invest 100% of your
project in Splunk-powered enhanced
analytics and improved ROI.
Splunk storage requirements:
• Splunk environments can throw
off TBs of data every day.
• Data can grow by an order of
magnitude as usage spikes.
• For every TB of raw machine data,
Splunk uses an average 23 times
that amount in tiered storage.
Storage systems on today’s market
weren’t built to handle machine-
generated data that requires both
performance and scale.
As data grows, it’s driving
enterprises into a storage crisis.
Existing solutions fall short:
• On-premises storage can’t deliver
the agility and economics apps
like Splunk require.
• The cloud comes with a sacrifice
in performance and security.
When it comes to high-performance
Splunk storage management, IT needs:
• Low latency
• Ease of administration
To get even more value out
of your Splunk deployment,
IT needs to redefine Splunk
storage best practices.
What’s the secret to managing the
spread of machine-generated data?
IT has to look at storage for the Splunk
enterprise in a new way – one that
moves hot, warm and cold data through
the data center and the cloud, and lets
Splunk use grow faster than previously
possible, so organizations stay agile.
