Eliminate Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt with Well Architected Solutions

Also known as object-based storage, object storage differs from other computer data storage architectures in that it lets you manage objects and access data via unique keys rather than through file systems or data blocks.

How It All Comes Together

Splunk performs three key functions as it processes data: it ingests data, it parses and indexes the data, and it also runs searches on the indexed data. 

Nutanix powers the Splunk search head, indexer, and forwarder VMs as well as the deployment, license, and Splunk user VMs. We provide scalable storage services to handle TBs of daily ingest rates, deliver fast search response times, and comply with data retention policies. 

Nutanix completes the Splunk solution with a set of foundational solutions that addresses security, predictive resource analytics, data protection, intelligent IT operations, application automation, and business continuity/disaster recovery.

Nutanix is Splunk SmartStore Ready

More and more IT organizations are having to store an enormous amount of logs for years to ensure compliance. More often than not, Splunk is the tool of choice for them. The challenge the ever growing log-storage requirement poses is where to store the growing data set (so scale is important) and how to store it in a cost effective manner (price).

To address these challenges, Splunk has introduced the Splunk SmartStore architecture. SmartStore enables Splunk customers to use object storage for their data retention requirements. Splunk can talk to an S3-compatible object store natively. This is where Nutanix Objects fits in since it is Splunk SmartStore ready. Nutanix Objects provides a hyper-scalable, easy to use, cloud-integrated and secure solution at an object store price point.
