Data has become so important and valuable that it is driving the fourth industrial revolution. Elastic wants organizations to spend less time gathering data and more time focusing on using data. Once they can ingest multiple data streams, including textual, numerical, geospatial, structured, and unstructured data, businesses need to analyze, search, and distribute the data. Dell EMC VxRail hyperconverged infrastructure offers a foundational platform that can scale up or out to support your business requirements to make the best use of your data.
This white paper provides guidelines and best practices for the optimal deployment of the Elastic Stack on Dell EMC VxRail. This paper documents the design that was used to validate the Elastic Stack solution.
The Elastic Stack on Dell EMC VxRail offers a scalable advantage to traditional three-tier architecture. The results from the Elastic Stack performance benchmarking tests, executed using the benchmarking tool Rally, clearly show that VxRail can support the performance requirements of the Elastic Stack. Other key benefits of deploying the Elastic Stack on VxRail include:
