Conquer Complexity at Any Scale With the New Splunk Observability Cloud

Until now, the tools that IT and DevOps teams relied on to monitor and manage applications and infrastructure have been disconnected, often separated into two or three different platforms. We’ve seen a massive shift to cloud infrastructure and containerized applications as organizations accelerate their digital and direct-to-consumer initiatives. With this shift to cloud, IT and DevOps teams are now wrestling with operational complexity. This complexity is compounded by too many existing monitoring tools that have blind spots, siloed data and disjointed workflows. That’s all about to change.

Today we’re excited to share that the Splunk Observability Cloud is now generally available. Since the beta release at .conf20, our teams have been hard at work building the most comprehensive, easy to use, and unified Observability solution. With the new Splunk Observability Cloud, IT and DevOps teams can get all their answers in one place with unified metrics, traces and logs — all collected in real-time, without sampling and at any scale. No other company brings all the needed Observability tools together in a unified interface, and ready to operate at enterprise scale, consuming all your data, on day one. We’re just getting started — Splunk Observability Cloud is already recognized as an industry-leading Observability solution

“IT and DevOps teams can conquer complexity and accelerate cloud transformation with the industry’s most trusted, analytics-powered and enterprise-grade Splunk Observability Cloud.”
– Spiros Xanthos, VP of Product Management, Observability and IT Operations, Splunk

Proprietary is Over – We’re Going All In With OpenTelemetry

Splunk is the leading contributor to OpenTelemetry, an open source observability framework comprising vendor-neutral APIs, software development kits and tools to collect telemetry data from cloud-native software and applications. We’ve optimized and designed the Splunk Observability Cloud to consume and manage OpenTelemetry data at scale. Splunk Observability Cloud is OpenTelemetry-native and we’re standardizing on it, enabling you to unify data ingestion without vendor lock-in and reduce resource consumption with our lightweight, open-source OpenTelemetry instrumentation.
