On this episode of The Six Five – Insiders Edition Patrick Moorhead and I are joined by Keith White, Senior Vice President for HPE GreenLake and Skip Bacon, Vice President of Product Management at Splunk. Both guests are actively involved in helping customers with digital transformation initiatives through their product and service offerings. Splunk and HPE are taking it one step further and partnering to provide breakthrough containerized capabilities to customers.
Our conversation covered several aspects of the Splunk HPE partnership including how the partnership grew out of a common need from both companies. Enterprise organizations that ingested large amounts of data struggled with bandwidth and latency issues. Containerization is the solution, but most enterprises lack the knowledge and talent to use containers. That’s where Splunk and HPE come in.
The HPE and Splunk Partnership
Our conversation with Keith and Skip also revolved around the following:
The value that Splunk and HPE customers are getting from their partnership.
How HPE GreenLake solved a lot of the scalability issues companies that were using Splunk’s platform were facing.
How companies are leveraging HPE Ezmeral Container Platform to modernize apps, write new cloud native apps, and develop Kubernetes.
Real world examples of how enterprises have successfully leveraged Splunk and HPE technologies.
Enterprise organizations are turning to containers and Kubernetes for more storage, increased ability to ingest data, more agility, and more security. Yet, many organizations are limited by internal resources. HPE GreenLake is a turnkey solution that runs the Kubernetes and container environment for you. Splunk is easy to deploy in conjunction with HPE GreenLake. Using the two together, organizations can see a 360-degree view of the customer including potential security issues. The best part? HPE GreenLake and Splunk utilize pay-as-you-go models, which allows enterprises to use as much or as little as they need while scaling quickly and easily — a real win in today’s marketplace.
