EMC Solution For High Performance Splunk on ScaleIO and Isilon

Splunk is a great analytics engine that can significantly reduce the time and resources needed


by an enterprise to derive valuable insight from their machine-to-machine data, like system and


application logs. This paper detailed the deployment and integration of a simple Splunk


environment utilizing EMC storage solutions. The storage solutions provide high


performance while simultaneously including the benefits of a scale-out architecture. ScaleIO give


unparalleled scalability using internal disk drives for Hot and Warm buckets, and Isilon scale-out


NAS creates a long-term storage solution for Cold buckets. This approach enables organizations


to avoid the resource intensive complexity of traditional Splunk deployments and illustrates a


simple environment to run Splunk projects using existing investments in VMware, ScaleIO and


EMC Isilon.
