SAN FRANCISCO – May 1, 2018 – Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), first in delivering “aha” moments from machine data, today announced the general availability of Splunk® Insights for Infrastructure. The new product answers the call for a low-cost way to easily enable systems administrators and DevOps teams to automatically correlate metrics and logs to monitor IT. Splunk Insights for Infrastructure takes minutes to get up and running and is free for small environments up to approximately 50 servers (200GB in total storage). Additional storage capacity can be purchased incrementally, starting at only $3,750 per year.
"Splunk Insights for Infrastructure provides a simple and effective entry point for teams that are just beginning to unlock the power of Splunk Enterprise," said Todd Kulick, vice president of technology, TiVo. "Splunk Insights for Infrastructure provides a clear and powerful way to view our entire infrastructure or to 'zoom into' views of a single machine or small portion of our service, so we can find and fix problems before they affect customers."
“Splunk is credited with inventing log monitoring, and Splunk Insights for Infrastructure reinvents the entire market by making it faster, easier and more affordable than ever for systems administrators and site reliability engineers to identify and correct infrastructure problems,” said Rick Fitz, senior vice president and general manager, IT Markets, Splunk. “Splunk Insights for Infrastructure redefines what customers should expect from monitoring and enables them to provide their customers with a positive digital experience while keeping their budgets to a minimum.”
Reduces Complexity in IT Monitoring
In many cases, the underlying infrastructure makes it difficult for IT Operations and DevOps teams to quickly and easily identify and correct problems. By automatically correlating metrics and logs in one product, Splunk Insights for Infrastructure provides immediate visibility into system performance, enabling customers to quickly detect problems and identify trends.
“Splunk Insights for Infrastructure cleverly combines metrics and logging for a more complete view of infrastructure performance,” said Daryl Robbins, senior cloud architect, Entrust Datacard. “We can use this product to see unusual behavior such as a CPU spike and correlate it with logs to troubleshoot problems much more quickly.”
