  • Machine data is big data

    Every IT application, system, and piece of infrastructure in a company, right down to the light switches, generates data at millisecond intervals. This machine-generated data is as complex as it is invaluable. It is also one of the fastest growing areas of Big Data.

    Machine-generated data contains a detailed record of all user transactions and individual customer and component behavior. It further captures sensor activity, machine performance, security threats, and fraudulent activity, to name a few. The data holds valuable insights, critical to both the security and the profitability of the enterprise.

  • Splunk and the role of storage

    Storage is a critical enabler for a successful Splunk deployment.

    • Performance: Incoming events (ingest) must be able to be stored while data is accessed at the same time for reporting and historical analysis.
    • Scalability: The storage architecture must provide near‑limitless scalability as ingest devices are being added (ingest increase) or data retention is extended for new use cases.
