Splunk announces enterprise services on AWS Cloud

The big data company is holding its annual conference in Las Vegas this week

Splunk, the Big Data company that allows companies to monitor machine data to drive efficiency, has announced the general availability of its flagship enterprise product running on Amazon Web Services' public Cloud.

It also revealed plans to make Splunk Cloud available on other public and private clouds in the near future.

Dejan Deklich, VP of cloud engineering at Splunk, announced the release during the keynote speech at the company's annual user conference in Las Vegas this week.

"Our mission is to make machine data usable, valuable and available to you - any type of data anywhere. You told us something very interesting, you told us that machine data in the cloud requires enterprise grade software, for us that means Splunk Enterprise in the cloud. That's exactly what we are delivering to you, you are getting all the features of Splunk Enterprise in the cloud," said Deklich.

"At the moment it's hosted on AWS, but we will make a plan to provide the service on other clouds, both public and private.

"We have built Splunk Cloud with enterprise production use cases in mind. For us that means massive data volumes, starting at several gigabytes per day going up to many terabytes per day. You can forward data to Splunk Cloud from anywhere, you can forward it from your on-premise environment, or from your many and varied cloud deployments."

Splunk Cloud will also allow enterprises to have a single point of view across all of their environments, where it will not only monitor machine data being generated in cloud environments but will collect all on-premise data too.

"The Splunk vision of delivering its software as a service across any type of user scenario allows its customers greater choice," said Dennis Callaghan, senior analyst at 451 Research.

"By providing an enterprise-class cloud service with all of the features of its flagship product, Splunk is making a strong statement about doing business in the cloud and looks to cement its position as a leader in the operational intelligence market, across all modes of delivery."

In other news Splunk has also announced the general availability of Splunk Enterprise 6, where it has improved the platform's user interface and boosted analytic speeds.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
