Splunk for Cisco Integrated Infrastructure (SPLUNK)

Splunk training covers how together, Splunk and UCS enable organizations to realize the potential of Operational Intelligence across the organization and gain real-time business insights that create a strategic advantage. The Splunk for Cisco Integrated Infrastructure training will cover 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. Lastly, the Cisco Splunk course will cover Splunk Apps and Add-Ons that provide ready-to-use functions for many Cisco Products and platforms. Find additional course details below.
