Splunk Inc., which provides a software platform for real-time operational intelligence, announced the general availability of Splunk Cloud, a new service that delivers Splunk Enterprise in the cloud.
Organizations can now access Splunk Cloud to gain visibility and operational insights into their machine-generated big data in the cloud, as well as correlate this data across their cloud and on-premises environments, according to the company.
With the introduction of Splunk Cloud for large-scale production environments, Splunk Storm — the cloud-based service introduced last year — will expand its free developer offerings to 20GB of total storage per month.
Splunk Cloud, powered by Amazon Web Services, includes access to all features of the Splunk Enterprise platform including apps, APIs, alerting and role-based access controls. Splunk Cloud supports all core Splunk Enterprise use cases including application management, digital intelligence, IT operations management and security. Splunk Cloud also integrates with on-premise deployments of Splunk to deliver visibility into operational status, key performance indicators and security postures across all environments.
“The Splunk vision of delivering its software as a service across any type of user scenario allows its customers greater choice,” Dennis Callaghan, senior analyst at 451 Research, said in a statement. “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.”
