Introduction to LogZilla's Unparalleled Efficiency
In today's data-driven world, businesses need powerful log management solutions to handle massive amounts of unstructured data. LogZilla's market-defining and patented software stands out from the competition by offering companies the fastest unstructured data management platform while saving up to 90% on deployment and maintenance costs compared to other solutions. But how does LogZilla achieve such remarkable performance and cost savings? Let's dive in.
Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data with Splunk Enterprise Deployment
To understand LogZilla's efficiency, it's helpful to compare it with a leading competitor – Splunk. Cisco Systems® published a reference design for a Splunk implementation to index "up to 2 TB/day." This reference design requires 14 UCS servers and costs around $482,000 USD in server and networking hardware. This architecture translates to about 50,000 Events Per Second (EPS) spread out over 14 servers, which comes to about 3,500 EPS per server. Keep in mind that the cost of software licensing, professional services, training, support, and any add-ons are extra.
How LogZilla Transforms Performance on a Single Server
In contrast to Splunk's reference design, LogZilla easily indexes the same amount of data on a single server. By doing so, you just saved your company $482,000 USD and that's before even factoring in the additional costs for software, licensing, and other "hidden" expenses such as professional service, support, training, and add-on packages. The LogZilla solution can replace several full racks of equipment, contributing significantly to its ROI.
A Comparative Look: LogZilla's ROI and Hardware Savings
When considering the cost of an enterprise-class server capable of handling high volumes of data, it's evident that the savings on hardware costs alone with LogZilla can be substantial.
Storage Cost Analysis: LogZilla vs. the Competition
Let's examine the storage costs associated with LogZilla and competing solutions. For an environment logging 2TB/day of data with a 30-day retention, a competitive solution would require 120TB of storage. At the time this document was written, the average cost of enterprise-class storage was approximately $275 for 6TB of storage. With RAID10 for redundancy, you'd give up half the storage capacity. Without LogZilla, your cost for disks alone would be $5,500 per month.
Using LogZilla's patented log aggregation algorithm, storage needs for your data decrease from 120TB to 12TB to store the same data with no message loss. With LogZilla, storing the same amount of data costs only $550.
Power and Cooling: The Hidden Costs of Deployment
One often-overlooked aspect of deployment is the power needed to cool all the hardware and the associated HVAC costs for those servers. When comparing LogZilla to competitive solutions, it's important to consider these hidden costs that can impact your bottom line.
Total Estimated Costs and Savings: LogZilla's Market Advantage
By taking into account storage and compute resources, as well as rack space and cooling costs, the true deployment cost becomes clear. LogZilla offers an impressive 82% savings over major competitors. This means that not only will LogZilla save you money when comparing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), but it also provides the world's best performance where all data is available in the server in real-time.
The LogZilla Difference: A New Standard in Log Management
LogZilla's patented technology and cost-saving approach to log management set it apart from competitors like Splunk. By offering unparalleled efficiency on a single server, reducing storage costs, and minimizing power and cooling expenses, LogZilla has redefined the standard for log management solutions. Businesses can now enjoy the fastest unstructured data management platform in the world without compromising on cost or performance.
