Splunk on the Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor

With Nutanix, customers can start their Splunk deployment small and then scale out the infrastructure as needed to meet data ingest and retention requirements. And the Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform ensures that the system will remain available, providing consistent ingest, indexing, and search performance. Administrators can focus on Splunk and the application, not on the infrastructure, adding compute and storage resources transparently to the cluster as the environment grows.

Running Splunk on Acorpolis is simple, secure and can scale.

Simple

If you can open a web browser and log into Prism your good to go. No hypervisor management to setup and all scaling and data migrations issues are handle by the storage fabric.

Secure

Nutanix believes that a system is only as secure at the last time its security posture was checked. Nutanix provides a Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) that uses machine-readable code to automate compliance against rigorous common standards. You can quickly assess and remediate your platform to ensure that all regulatory requirements are exceeded.

Scale

With the Nutanix solution you can start small and scale. A single Nutanix block (up to four nodes) provides from 20-40+ TB storage and 96+ cores in a compact footprint. Given the modularity of the solution, you can scale per node, giving you the ability to accurately match supply with demand and minimize the upfront CapEx. If the speed of solution is meeting your requirements you can just simply add storage nodes and save cash for another project.
