Splunk Releases New Version of Splunk App for Windows

Delivers Deep Visibility to Identify Performance Issues and Prevent Outages

Microsoft Management Summit 2013, LAS VEGAS - April 8, 2013Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced version 5.0 of the Splunk® App for Windows, which delivers enterprise-class monitoring for Microsoft Windows Server. The Splunk App for Windows enables users to monitor their end-to-end infrastructure to prevent outages and pinpoint performance issues in minutes. The Splunk App for Windows will be demonstrated this week at the Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas in the Splunk booth (#623). Download the Splunk App for Windows today.

"The update to the Splunk App for Windows, as well as the recent update to the Splunk App for VMware, reflect Splunk's commitment to creating a platform that will allow end users to analyze data from their strategic IT investments," said Rachel Chalmers, research vice president - infrastructure, 451 Research. "Windows presents a monitoring dilemma for organizations of any size. The new version of the Splunk App for Windows should help simplify this monitoring challenge by incorporating Windows data with other data generated across the infrastructure."

"IT organizations around the world rely on Microsoft Windows Server as the base of their business infrastructure," said Manish Kalra, director of product marketing, Splunk. "The Splunk App for Windows helps to create visibility across the entire Windows infrastructure, monitoring everything from Windows Servers to the thousands of Windows-based laptops and PCs. This can help keep critical systems online by enabling users to identify performance issues in real time or before they happen."

Today's Windows environments are more complex than ever before and are often deployed at a massive global scale. The need for real-time monitoring of the Windows platform is key to ensuring compliance of critical updates and patches and avoiding performance bottlenecks and network lag. The Splunk App for Windows enables Windows operations teams to monitor and analyze components beyond basic infrastructure by collecting and indexing machine data from CPUs, memory, disk and network usage, Windows updates, event logs and more. The Splunk App for Windows facilitates getting more machine-generated data from more sources into a single platform, enabling Splunk Enterprise to deliver more value across the enterprise by helping:

  • Application teams better understand the baseline infrastructure that supports an application or service and avoid service degradation.
  • Windows administrators troubleshoot performance and use real-time metrics to plan for workload delivery.
  • Network administrators leverage real-time performance metrics to avoid service outages and increase performance.
  • CIOs gain real-time visibility of Windows Server infrastructure performance and service levels.

Concur uses Splunk Enterprise across its organization for a variety of business and IT use cases including IT operations, application management and security. Concur relies on the Splunk App for Windows to create a holistic view of its Windows Server environment.

"Windows Server is an important part of our business systems, and visibility into that infrastructure is critical to our performance as an enterprise," said John Tharp, Software Configuration Engineer, Concur. "The Splunk App for Windows helps us troubleshoot our Windows Servers to speed recovery and prevent outages. Our admins now have the big picture of OS and application events at their fingertips and no longer need to aggregate results individually. This improves our ownership, helping us to keep these critical systems online."
