SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 18 -- Splunk, the IT Search company, today announced that leading next generation technology companies, including Coghead, Elastra, GoGrid, Mashery, and RightScale, have deployed Splunk IT Search to strengthen their offerings and reliably deliver services, applications, platforms and infrastructure, via the cloud. Splunk IT Search delivers critical infrastructure management and reporting, allowing end users and cloud providers to prosper through managing available resources and reliably delivering on their service level agreements.
As end users scale out their infrastructures with the cloud, they are turning to Splunk to manage, secure and audit the environment, pushing cloud providers to focus on the operational efficiency of their own infrastructures and ensuring an overall reliable computing environment. In addition to promoting cloud computing reliability, these Splunk customers have been able to migrate to the cloud quickly, taking full advantage of the flexibility of IT Search.
"Information provided by the Splunk IT Search Platform is vital for managing mission critical applications on the cloud," said Thorsten von Eicken, CTO and Founder, RightScale, the leader in cloud computing management. "By integrating Splunk's offering with our cloud management platform, we are able to provide our customers with the information they need to manage standard operational jobs like troubleshooting, enhancing security, and compliance log management as well as valuable insights into their users' interaction and relevant business trends."
Splunk customer and the leading provider of enterprise cloud application management software, Elastra, is using IT Search in the cloud to facilitate its enterprise-grade application delivery automation, "Our customers rely on Elastra's products to rapidly configure, deploy and manage enterprise application systems in public and private computing clouds, so it is essential that we provide clear visibility and seamlessly deliver their applications in this dynamic environment. Splunk IT Search helps us make this happen," said Stuart Charlton, chief software architect, Elastra.
While cloud computing offers great efficiencies and improved economies of scale, it opens up a new set of IT management challenges including infrastructure availability, security, policy and support. As more and more companies move to the cloud they encounter the struggle of using traditional technologies to monitor and measure these transient environments. Unfortunately, these incumbent monitoring and management tools were not designed for the cloud and lack the capabilities needed to keep up with dynamic environments. Splunk's ability to provide insight into rapidly changing IT infrastructures enables end users and cloud providers to detect anomalies, ensure service levels and identify risks quickly. In addition, the simplicity and flexibility of IT Search makes the transition to the cloud fast and straightforward, fundamentally changing how cloud-based technology providers deliver and end-users adopt these infrastructures.
"Traditional IT management and monitoring tools have a hard enough time keeping up with yesterday's infrastructures," said Erik Swan, chief technology officer and co-founder, Splunk. "That's why the leading cloud providers are turning to Splunk IT Search to deliver the visibility their customers need into critical security, compliance and operational data. The ability to turn logs, metrics, configurations, messages, and alerts from across any IT infrastructure, including the cloud, into actionable information has made Splunk a necessary ingredient for any cloud provider."
Splunk's next generation technology customers represent a list of leaders in the cloud service provider space:
