Announcing Availability of Splunk Observability Cloud in EMEA (eu-west-1)

Today, Splunk is excited to announce the addition of regional availability (eu-west-1) to the world’s first end-to-end, enterprise-scale, fully-integrated Observability Cloud. The Observability Cloud launched in North America on May 5, 2021, and has already empowered customers to get more actionable insights, faster, from all of their data. For example, Quantum Metric, one of 2020’s unicorns, and a Splunk Cloud Platform customer, used Splunk Observability Cloud to develop applications 96% faster and to save nearly US$80,000 thanks to better visibility and capacity planning driven by Splunk’s analytics-driven approach to observability.

"The Splunk Observability Cloud helps us see clearly into our complex environment, allowing us to act based on data, so we can deliver on our mission to help customers build better products, faster." 
- Glenn Trattner, Chief Operating Officer, Quantum Metric
