Splunk for Cloud Consumers
If you're running applications in the cloud, you want to know how they are being used, how the underlying infrastructure is performing and what the end user experience is like.
Splunk harnesses machine data generated by your cloud applications such as logs, events, metrics to provide unique insights about application performance, usage related analytics and end user behavior.
Whether you're running Ruby, Django, Python, Java based applications and whether you're running in Amazon Web Services, Rackspace or VMware based clouds- Splunk can make sense of your application data and help you:
Gain Operational Analytics
Harness the operational data in your environment such as web logs, application logs, clickstream data to generate usage analytics such as monetization triggers, usage patterns, user retention statistics, without interfering with end user experience.
Resolve Problems Faster, Reduce Downtime
Aggregate data from all components of your cloud application to gain insights into application response times, transaction completion times, error rates and more. Monitor your cloud deployment for anomalies, deviations and prevent problems from impacting end users
Scale Monitoring with Your Cloud Operation
Splunk scales linearly on cloud instances or commodity hardware, to handle gigantic quantities of data- regardless of format, structure or source. Use Splunk to store, analyze and report on transient data about your cloud applications.
Get End to End Situational Awareness
Use Splunk for forensics and root cause analysis from a security standpoint. Use Splunk's rich visualization to watch trends in access and security data representations for better pattern detection and fraud prevention
