Deployment Architecture

Search Head Cluster that index data



We are analysing Splunk in a HA environment with 2 or 3 instances of Splunk Enterprise that replicate data between them and also configurations and apps. This can be accomplished with a Search Head Cluster (with a deployer) and an Indexer Cluster. It is possible to have both clusters in the same machine? I mean, can a Search Head Cluster also store and index data and replicate it to other members of the Search Head Cluster without the necessity of a separate Indexer Cluster?

Thanks in advanced,

No, you need indexer clusters and search head clusters to have their own machines.

Indexer Clustering docs say no:
