Splunk Cloud now available across nine global AWS regions, as well as AWS GovCloud
Splunk Cloud is now available through nine AWS regions, offering enterprise customers up 10+ terabytes per day and giving Splunk access to AWS’ machine learning tools.
“Splunk is a long term, innovative AWS Technology Partner and we are excited to see them extend their reach to new geographies,” said Terry Wise, vice president of worldwide partner ecosystem, Amazon Web Services.
“By ‘going-global’ on AWS, Splunk is able to serve the needs of organisations worldwide, including those moving mission-critical production workloads to the cloud. We are excited to see Splunk’s global footprint increase as we launch more AWS regions around the world.”
Splunk, which traditionally offered software to analyse big data, is now looking to move into other areas such as cloud and security. With the partnership, Splunk Cloud customers and Splunk itself will be able to benefit from AWS’ recently-announced machine learning.
Splunk’s software is set to be deployed to monitor and analyse the IT systems and network behavior for a platform called the Autonomic Logisitics Information System (ALIS), which Lockheed Martin describes as the off-board IT ‘backbone’ to the F-35 Lightning program.
