Splunk on the Bigstep Metal Cloud

Splunk on the Bigstep Metal Cloud is used to search, monitor and analyze vast quantities of machine data in order to gain operational insight.

Visualization solution for big and fast data

With Splunk on the Bigstep Metal Cloud, it takes mere milliseconds to get answers from your machine data.
It can ingest any kind of data, with no predefined schema from any source. Events can then be isolated and correlated.
Anomalies can be identified and complex non-apparent causality relationships between events can be promptly detected.

  • Over 10.000 files/second ingested with a single Compute Instance
  • 1 TB/day processed with a single Compute Instance
  • Minimum 30% increase in performance compared to virtualized environments
  • Over 10.000 IOPS per drive

Accelerate business value through self-service analytics and visualizations

Splunk makes it simple to collect, analyze and act upon the untapped value of the big data generated by your technology infrastructure, security systems and business applications - giving you the insights to drive operational performance and business results.

Any Machine Data

Collect and index log and machine data from any source. Combine your machine data with data in your relational databases, data warehouses and Hadoop and NoSQL data stores.

Enterprise-Class Architecture

Multi-site clustering and automatic load balancing scale to support hundreds of terabytes of data per day, optimize response times and provide continuous availability.

Open Development Platform

The Splunk platform makes it easy to customize Splunk Enterprise to meet the needs of any project. Developers can build custom Splunk applications or integrate Splunk data into other applications.

Splunkbase Apps and Add-Ons

Apps from Splunk, our partners and our community enhance and extend the power of the Splunk platform.

Deployment architecture

We deploy the latest version of Splunk Free (7.0.0) – which allows the ingestion of up to 500 MB/day.
For higher data volumes, appropriate licensing is required. Once licensing is acquired, it can be seamlessly added to an existing Splunk deployment on the Bigstep Metal Cloud. 

The deployment includes a Search Heads Instance Array and an Indexers Instance Array.
Search head machines keep track of existing indexing servers. When performing a search operation, queries are sent from search heads to indexers.
Each data source has to be configured manually on targeted indexers.

Scaling Splunk on the Bigstep Metal Cloud

When data volumes and licensing grow, the Instance Arrays can be scaled horizontally by adding more instances, or vertically by changing the configuration specs. For vertical scaling, a reboot of the scaled Instance Array is required.

Integration with On-Premises Infrastructures

If you intend to use Splunk for analyzing logs or other machine data generated by an on-premises infrastructure, data can be transferred securely into the Bigstep Metal Cloud by merging our software-defined network’s layer 2 broadcast domains with any exterior ones, via a secure tunnel.Instances in the Bigstep Metal Cloud can access data trapped in various silos across the organization with no disruption to the running services. Existing VLANs can also be extended over to the Bigstep bare metal network.
