If there’s one statement nearly every organization agrees with, it’s this: there is no shortage of data. But making sense out of the vast pool of machine-generated data is a challenge. Fortunately, solutions are available to help. Splunk has emerged as one of the top solutions for helping organizations index and utilize machine data.
But as more and more data are generated and indexed into Splunk environments, organizations are feeling increased pressure on their IT budgets.
In this paper, we will compare the economics of a traditional Splunk environment using local storage plus SAN/NAS to the newer Splunk SmartStore environment using Cloudian® HyperStore®—Cloudian’s on-premises S3-compatible storage solution.
