Enterprise Infrastructure and Splunk Apps Buckets Full of Happy Tiers   Scale-Out for Deploying Massive and Efficient Splunk Environments

Cory Minton, Principal SE, Dell EMC

Jenny Hollfelder, Sales Engineer, Global Strategic Alliances, Splunk Inc.



Bring the tissues and be ready for buckets of happy tiers (of scale out infrastructure for Splunk, that is!). We are going to show you how to build efficient, high performance Splunk deployments on enterprise infrastructure. These deployments intelligently leverage Splunk designs for data management and allow you to Splunk all that infrastructure too…feels like we just made a full circle there. That’s kind of the point. We will show you the enterprise-class Splunk solutions Dell EMC has built across its storage and converged platforms portfolios, give you a real-world demonstration on how to use the freely available Dell EMC apps for Splunk Enterprise to troubleshoot and gain additional operational insight into your environment, AND give you some great best practices we’ve learned to make your Splunk and Dell EMC environments perform at their very best. Seriously, come join us to find out more!

Bucket Diversity: Choosing Your Search Mate Wisely

Dean Jackson, Principal Systems Engineer, DELL EMC

Simon O'Brien, Staff Sales Engineer, Splunk

800 IOPs? How do I design for that? Splunk buckets now have so many infrastructure options (local or shared, “flashy” or not, and now even data reduction), that it can be a bit confusing. We will reveal the anatomy of a Splunk bucket from the storage perspective, discuss what kind of workload the Splunk platform truly generates between ingestion and search, and ultimately, arm you with the knowledge to size your buckets wisely.
