Splunk® Cloud

Dashboards and Visualizations

Customized dashboards and data visualizations give voice to your data to create impactful narratives that drive action.

Show the beauty in your data

Choose from a wide range of charts and other visualizations to tell a data story that is compelling and actionable. Intuitive and interactive tools make sense of complex data, empowering you to identify issues and opportunities.


Tell a story with your visualizations

Dashboards integrate charts, reports and re-usable panels to display a comprehensive data story. Build and personalize dashboards to display the most relevant information for different audiences and use cases. Additionally, use the same data and tailor it specifically for management, business and security analysts, auditors, developers, and operations teams to help them act fast.

Monitoring and Alerting


Greater visibility into your operations

Continuous monitoring of events, conditions, and critical KPIs helps keep your operations running smoothly. With scheduled searches you can create real-time dashboards and visualizations that keep your team and management informed. Out-of-the box monitoring dashboards for common IT, security, and application environments are also available in the Splunkbase app store.


Get your critical alerts in real-time

Alerts can signal critical events and impending conditions in real-time. Splunk's custom alert actions feature makes it simple to automatically kickoff subsequent action (think: sending emails and executing remediation scripts) when an alert is triggered. Further, these custom alerts can be set to varying levels of granularity based on a variety of conditions (e.g. data thresholds, trend-based conditions, and behavorial pattern recognition, like abandoned shopping carts, brute force attacks, and fraud scenarios).


Reports can be created in real time, scheduled to run at any interval and used in your dashboards. They can also be saved and shared in secure, read-only formats like PDFs via ODBC.



The small data type with an outsized performance boost

Splunk allows for complete utilization of metrics data to boost its already-fast performance by at least 2000X over previous releases (before version 7.0). And now with Metrics Workspace you don't need to know SPL to browse, analyze and transform large (or small) metrics data sets. Accelerate time-to-insight and time-to-action with easy-to-use, visual data analysis capabilities.

Logs to Metrics. Metrics data are numerical data points captured over time that can be compressed, stored, processed and retrieved more efficiently than logs. Scale your ability to use this data type by converting your logs into metrics.

Metrics Workspace. The Metrics Workspace is a new visual analytics interface within the Search and Reporting app that provides Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud customers (release 7.1 and beyond) a GUI-based way to explore their metrics data—from disk space, to application response times, to temperature readings in IoT devices—without requiring SPL. It also enables the creation of sophisticated, metrics-focused alerts and dashboards.

We chose Splunk to help us monitor and manage our mobile battery systems in the field...Now we can proactively maintain our battery systems on customer sites which enables us to improve the overall customer experience.

Machine Learning Toolkit (MLTK)


Incorporate AI and Machine learning Into your data strategy

Use pre-built Splunk machine learning analytics for idenfitied use cases or create your own custom machine learning models to tackle impactful issues or opportunities in your company. Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit supports custom machine learning model development through guided assistants, providing flexibility if you want to go beyond configuring a pre-built solution. The MLTK extends the Splunk platform with outlier and anomaly detection, predictive analytics and clustering to filter out the noise. Leverage pre-packaged and open source algorithms to operationalize your data with machine learning in your production environment. New, smart assistants have an easier-to-use, GUI-based approach that guide you through each step of the process, writing SPL in the background that you can review later for insight into further customization.

Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit, and the new Splunk Community for MLTK Algorithms on GitHub enables our Professional Services Consultants to deliver broader and more valuable data science and machine learning solutions. We can now use the most appropriate algorithm to solve complex business problems in a clean, consistent and supportable manner, which means our customers get more powerful, focused solutions and a much more satisfying experience.

Scale and Manageability

Splunk Cloud stores your data to be optimized for the cloud. Configure your data retention according to your auditing and compliance requirements and purchase more storage capacity if you need it.


Bold next-generation architecture

SmartStore maximizes data management flexibility while maintaining search performance by allowing compute (CPUs) and data storage to be independently scaled up or down based on business demands. It automatically evaluates users’ data access patterns via an application-aware cache and places actively accessed data in local storage for real-time analytics and unused/inactive data in lower-cost, remote storage.

This maximizes scalability and data availability by expanding data retention capabilities while significantly lowering cost of ownership and increasing flexibility with built-in applications and an index-aware cache. Additionally, it simplifies indexer maintenance as all data gets pushed to remote storage to assist with patching, upgrading or replacing indexes without impacting data integrity.



Put your data where you want, stay compliant, and save money

Your data is dynamic, that is, it can be put to work in a lot of different ways and places. Splunk's Dynamic Data options allow organizations to adhere with long-term data retention requirements for multiple reasons including compliance (e.g. HIPAA, PCI). As the size of data increases, managing your costs associated data storage and its availability becomes increasingly important.

Dynamic Data: Active Archive improves data manageability and lowers the costs associated to data retention by archiving less-frequently accessed data. Archived data can easily be refreshed and searched with Splunk Cloud. 



I was blown away with the instant access to intelligent visual reports, the broad scope of use cases, and the embedded security in Splunk Cloud.

Continued advancements in speed

Splunk's Workload Management feature provides a policy-based mechanism that enables you to reserve system resources (e.g. CPU and memory) for ingestion and search workloads based on your organization’s priorities. This enables administrators to classify workloads into different groups and then reserve system resources for higher-priority workload groups.


Enterprise Integrations

Embed everywhere and bring you workstreams together

Embed Splunk reports in any application or use our ODBC integrations to access Splunk data in applications such as Microsoft Excel or Tableau. And with Splunk alerts, you can automatically trigger actions in ticketing or other task assignment systems. Additionally, rich SDKs let your team integrate Splunk data and functionality in ways we may not have even thought of yet.


User Auth

A secure, transportable identity system

Splunk Cloud supports SAML integration for single sign-on through most popular identity providers like Okta, PingFederate, Azure AD, CA SiteMinder, OneLogin and Optimal IdM. Splunk Cloud can also integrate with other authentication systems, including LDAP, Active Directory, and e-Directory.




Industry certified, customer trusted

If you work with data, you likely have an acronym that governs it. No matter if it's GDPR, PCI DSS, HIPAA, or SOC 3, Splunk is designed to report out on compliance and is certified with industry bodies to ensure your data's security.

Buy any index volume. Splunk offers volume pricing discounts—the more you ingest, the less you pay per GB of ingested data. Contact us for more information.

Splunk Cloud is priced by how much data you send into Splunk Cloud in a day. We recommend that you purchase an instance size that aligns with the maximum amount of data you expect to send to Splunk in one day. With this pricing model, you pay once to index the data and then can perform unlimited searches against that data.


Splunk Cloud is available as an annual subscription and support is included in the price of the service. A Splunk Cloud subscription includes sufficient data storage to retain the equivalent of 90 days of ingested data (based on the subscribed index capacity).
