Scaling and securing for the future
Through it all, Splunk’s pricing model offers the flexibility kumu needs, while eliminating runaway costs and budget surprises. Unlike data volume-based pricing which can be unpredictable, Splunk Observability looks at usage based on average usage over 30 days and charges customers according to the number of devices or hosts they want to analyze, protect and monitor. As a result, kumu no longer deals with excessive costs and can predict observability spend. Kumu can introduce new functions and scale to unlimited data volumes and simply plan for the number of assets protected.
The scalability of Splunk Observability also supports the rapid growth of kumu’s user base. “We have different environments throughout the company, where some only have a few servers and some have massive distributed systems,” Capiral says. “As the Splunk solution is highly scalable, it allows us to monitor and manage large, complex environments with ease.”
In addition to observability, kumu is also using Splunk to strengthen its cybersecurity posture. Splunk Incident Intelligence unifies on-call management, incident response and troubleshooting, further reducing unplanned downtime. The company is better positioned to fulfill its mission to champion Filipino voices and engage users around the world.
