Splunk Improves Product Quality with Docker Enterprise

Splunk produces software that runs both on-premises and in the cloud for searching, monitoring, and analyzing machine generated data. The company’s mission is to make machine data accessible across an organization by identifying data patterns, providing metrics, diagnosing problems and providing intelligence for business operations.

Splunk Runs Its CI/CD and Test Infrastructure on Docker and Supports 20,000 Deployments Per Day

Challenge


More demanding software testing requirements put increased pressure on the existing data center infrastructure. The team wanted to adopt DevOps practices, but needed a commercially supported solution for both Linux and Windows.

Solutions


Splunk leverages Docker Enterprise as the foundation for their CI/CD and test infrastructure, integraing with Jenkins to automate performance tests.

Results


New tests can be deployed in minutes rather than days. The Docker Enterprise platform at Splunk supports 2,000 concurrent containerized jobs and has increased average CPU utilization to 75 percent.
