Welcome to the official Splunk documentation on containerizing Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Universal Forwarder deployments with Docker.
Splunk Enterprise is a platform for operational intelligence. Our software lets you collect, analyze, and act upon the untapped value of big data that your technology infrastructure, security systems, and business applications generate. It gives you insights to drive operational performance and business results.
The Docker-Splunk project is the official source code repository for building Docker images of Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Universal Forwarder. By introducing containerization, we can marry the ideals of infrastructure-as-code and declarative directives to manage and run Splunk Enterprise.
This repository should be used by people interested in running Splunk in their container orchestration environments. With this Docker image, we support running a standalone development Splunk instance as easily as running a full-fledged distributed production cluster, all while maintaining the best practices and recommended standards of operating Splunk at scale.
