Splunk has been providing rapid unstructured data ingestion, search, correlation, and visualisation tools since its creation, and has augmented its capabilities with acquisitions over recent years to provide a complete incident “war room” and application observability capability, building up to today’s announcement.
Splunk’s Observability Cloud is the only full-stack, analytics-powered and enterprise-grade observability solution available.
Splunk's proven power in surfacing insights aggregated across vast quantities of logs, metrics, and other data items allow users to solve problems in seconds, not hours and removes blind spots and dead ends.
The Splunk Observability Cloud means IT and DevOps teams can get all their answers in unified interfaces, built on top of real-time data.
“With the shift to cloud, IT and DevOps teams are now wrestling with more operational complexity that is compounded by too many existing monitoring tools that have blind spots, siloed data and disjointed workflows,” said Sendur Sellakumar, Chief Product Officer, Splunk. “The Splunk Observability Cloud helps IT and DevOps teams conquer complexity and accelerate cloud transformation for their organisations.”
The product brings together the world’s best-in-class solutions for infrastructure monitoring, application performance management, real user monitoring, synthetic monitoring, log investigation and incident response.
The product includes Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, Splunk APM, Splunk Real User Monitoring (RUM), Splunk Synthetic Monitoring, Splunk Log Observer, and Splunk On-Call. It is backed by Splunk’s real-time streaming analytics and massive scalability.
Splunk Synthetic Monitoring is a new solution powered by the technology from the acquisition of Rigor, and is now integrated across most Splunk products. This best-in-class synthetic monitoring solution improves uptime and performance of APIs, service endpoints, business transactions, and user flows.
“Until now, the tools that IT and DevOps teams rely on to monitor and manage applications and infrastructure have been disconnected, often separated into two or three different platforms,” said Spiros Xanthos, VP of Product Management, Observability and IT Operations, Splunk. “The Splunk Observability Cloud brings all the needed Observability solutions together in a unified interface designed to help customers gain a comprehensive view across all their data and operate at enterprise scale.”
Splunk is integrating these tools under one clear host-based pricing metric directly tied to the value IT and DevOps teams will extract from the solution.
