The best research requires the best technology tools. Splunk works with universities around the world to power cutting-edge academic research with powerful big data tools.

Splunk provides a one-year, 10GB license for Splunk software and eLearning to qualifying not-for-profit universities at no cost. To qualify, your school must be an accredited not-for-profit institution of higher education and use the license and eLearning for research purposes only.
