Dell EMC has had a strategic partnership with Splunk for the past few years now with the goal of providing our joint customers with optimal infrastructure to deploy and grow their Splunk environments.
Back on March 1, Splunk announced their fiscal year 2018 financial results and blew their numbers out of the water. They saw a 34 percent year-over-year growth in revenue and added over 1,500 new customers. Their CEO Doug Merritt commented that “organizations around the world are increasingly turning to Splunk to get strategic business answers from their machine data. Our opportunity is massive.”
Customers who use Splunk quickly realize that having the right infrastructure is paramount to being successful with Splunk. I’ve spoken with many customers who initially purchased Splunk and deployed it on vacent hardware only to find that after a few months, as data sources and users are added, the performance needed isn’t there. Last year, Dell EMC came out with our first Ready Solutions for Splunk and last month, we released our updated Ready Bundle for Splunk on Dell PowerEdge 14G.
What is the Ready Bundle for Splunk?
The Ready Bundle for Splunk is a part of the Dell EMC Ready Solutions family. If you have not heard about Ready Solutions before, in short they are workload specific solutions that are tested and validated to help accelerate innovation, reduce deployment risks and lower total cost of ownership. Within the Ready Solutions family we have three Ready Solutions for Splunk: Ready System for Splunk on VxRack, Ready System for Splunk on VxRail and Ready Bundle for Splunk with PowerEdge. Additionally, with all our Ready Solutions, you have the option to add Isilon scale-out NAS for your cold data as a way to tier out your storage for Splunk. The Ready Bundle for Splunk consists of compute, storage, networking and Splunk Enterprise (which Dell EMC can resell) that provides the building blocks for deploying Splunk.
Within the Ready Bundle, there are different options that customers can choose from depending on your specific needs for Splunk. All of the options were designed based on Splunk’s hardware recommendations.
Dell EMC PowerEdge 14g servers on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors provide some great new features and capabilities that greatly benefit Splunk deployments.
There are a lot of other great features and upgrades with PowerEdge 14g. Here is a great blog that talks more about them.
