Splunk Upgrades Cloud Monitoring Analytics


As enterprises accelerate the shift to a hybrid private/public cloud model, a growing list of data analytics vendors are stepping up to offer cloud monitoring and other tools designed to ease cloud migrations that are expected to consume the lion’s share of IT budgets over the next year and a half.

Among them is Splunk Inc., which this week rolled out a cloud-monitoring tool specifically geared to tracking workloads running on Amazon Web Services (NASDAQ: AMZN) public clouds. The analytics tool is designed to increase visibility into AWS infrastructure to track cloud usage and fine tune cloud infrastructure while gauging workload performance and application availability.

Cloud users “need the ability to correlate data sources across environments, in real time to derive maximum value,” Rick Fitz, Splunk’s senior vice president of IT markets, noted in a statement.

San Francisco-based Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK), is among a growing number of cloud analytics vendors providing application and workload monitoring tools as more companies embrace hybrid cloud deployments and shift sensitive workloads to AWS and other public clouds.
