Splunk drops storage cost by 40-80 per cent

Adds additional functionality for partners with two new offerings

Data analytics company, Splunk, has released the latest iteration of its Splunk Enterprise software offering, version 6.4, and a new Splunk Cloud offering.

The company said enterprise customers can now reduce storage costs for historical data by up to 80 percent for on-premises, cloud and hybrid deployments.

Splunk country manager A/NZ, Simon Eid, told ARN the cost savings for storing historical or ‘cold’ data were delivered through software-defined storage that increased efficiencies.

“We talk about hot, warm and cold data and what it can do. The improvements in the release were really about solving the metadata issue and reducing the storage impact,” he said.

“If we had 1Tb of metadata stored in 6.3, now due to the way the software works, we are storing 40-80 per cent less than that.”

Splunk also said the platform now enables users to selectively optimise the cost and performance of queries on their historical data.

Both Splunk Cloud and Splunk Enterprise include new interactive visualisations and an open library on the company’s database, Splunkbase, where customers and partners can develop and share custom visualisations.

“It provides additional functionality for our partners building splunk apps. It is about providing a view of an end to end service level across an organisation’s infrastructure,” Eid said.

Other new features in both platforms include enhanced Big Data analytics, improved query performance, platform security and management improvements.

“We have automated that end-to-end service process based on key performance indicators (KPI’s) the organisation can define itself.

The vendor has also made available Cloud analytics apps for Akamai Content Delivery Network (CDN) services, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and ServiceNow.

“It is more of an integration point with those three products,” Eid explained.

“We are building apps for operational insights into each one of those applications. It just takes it to that next level of insight for what an organisation is doing with those three offerings.”
