Teams responsible for managing large-scale and rapidly growing data center infrastructure constantly meet challenges in terms of scalability and flexibility needs. Enterprises are transitioning from the traditional data center to a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) approach to address these challenges. HCI based offerings give enterprises the ability to support modern workload and provides a simplified solution to manage their infrastructure needs. Organizations are switching to public cloud security and log analytics to provide uninterrupted operations with minimum downtime and SLAs with huge amount of data being generated daily. Since many organizations are switching to cloud, the necessity for public cloud security tools and log analytics platforms is increasing rapidly.
A substantial amount of this data consists of logs like web server, http, application logs, and so on. With careful and detail log analysis, organizations can tap on various business opportunities and threats surrounding it. The Elastic Stack solution on Dell EMC VxFlex family provides complete log analysis that helps in searching, analyzing, visualizing data from different machines, in addition helping to identify any potential security threats.
This white paper provides guidelines and best practices for optimal deployment of Elastic Stack on Dell EMC VxFlex family.
The Dell EMC VxFlex family for Elastic Stack solution offers unique advantages. The results from Elastic stack performance benchmarking tests, executed using benchmarking tool Rally clearly showed that VxFlex can support high performance requirements of Elastic stack. Other key benefits of deploying Elastic stack on VxFlex include:
