Course Overview


In this course, you will learn how Splunk software scales to collect and index hundreds of terabytes of data per day, across multi-geography, multi-datacenter and cloud based infrastructures. Using Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data offers linear scalability along with operational simplification for single-rack and multiple-rack deployments. To facilitate faster and more predictable deployments. Cisco has published multiple reference architectures for Splunk software plus a comprehensive Cisco Validated Design that provides prescriptive, step-by-step guidance for deploying Splunk Enterprise on Cisco UCS.
