Sponsored by Businesswire

the leader in multi-cloud data storage and management, today announced
the new SwiftStack Software Appliance, featuring 1click Application
Profiles that simplify the provisioning, tuning, and ongoing management
of storage for leading data-driven enterprise applications. SwiftStack’s
first generally available 1click Application Profile is for Splunk
Enterprise with SmartStore,
Splunk’s optimized data architecture that reduces infrastructure costs
and operational complexity.

The SwiftStack Software Appliance automates the installation,
configuration, and maintenance of all software components on the storage
nodes housing the application data sets. 1click Application Profiles are
then implemented through a single-click process to configure a
ready-to-use storage system tailored for the specific application. With
the 1click Application Profile for Splunk Enterprise, Splunk users can
instantly provision storage that is plug-compatible with SmartStore and
quickly realize its benefits.

“With the Software Appliance and 1click Application Profile for Splunk,
enterprises using SmartStore can be online with scale-out hybrid cloud
storage in a matter of minutes, with no special expertise required,”
said Hiren Chandiramani, VP of Product Management at SwiftStack.
“SwiftStack has always received positive feedback on its installation
and management simplicity, but the 1click Application Profile takes
ease-of-use to an entirely new level.”

Building on SwiftStack’s strategic partnership with Cisco, the
SwiftStack Software Appliance is initially available for the Cisco UCS
S3260 storage server. Cisco offers pre-defined Solution Bundles for
SwiftStack which are supported by the software appliance, including a
three-chassis Cisco UCS S3260 configuration with 672TB of usable storage
capacity. The SwiftStack Software Appliance and 1click Application
Profiles will support additional server models and enterprise
applications over time.

The SwiftStack Software Appliance and 1click Application Profile for
Splunk Enterprise was unveiled for the first time today at Splunk’s
GovSummit event
and will be showcased at other Splunk Live events
throughout the year. To learn more, see
