Please offer considerations and cons for additional indexer server on the Cloud

Path Finder

Hello Splunkers!


Here is the case. 

We already have clustered indexers on-premise and thinking to get an additional indexer server on our cloud system and adding to the index cluster on-premise.


What would be the considerations and cons? 


Thank you in advance 🙂

I'll assume you have a private cloud rather than Splunk Cloud.

Pro: additional indexer capacity

Cons: latency; data egress charges from the cloud provider

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
