Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time operational intelligence, today announced the general
availability of version 3.1 of the Splunk® App for VMware, which
provides comprehensive operational visibility into virtualized
environments. This release delivers significant new features, including
200 out-of-the-box reports, the ability to instantly identify outliers
for real-time triage and built-in correlation into storage systems
including a direct drill down into data from NetApp Data ONTAP. Contact
Splunk to get a 60-day free trial of version
3.1 of the Splunk App for VMware today.
“Enterprise clouds based on VMware are transforming traditional data
centers and driving the need for operational visibility across all
infrastructure and application tiers,” said Leena Joshi, senior director
of infrastructure operations marketing, Splunk. “The latest version of
the Splunk App for VMware pre-packages correlations across
virtualization and storage tiers to help organizations tackle the
hardest operational problems. We are excited to play such a critical
role in simplifying the way data center operations personnel gain
real-time and historical insights into the virtualization layer, with
the full context of application and infrastructure performance, health,
capacity and security.”
"RMS has been using Splunk Enterprise and the Splunk App for VMware
since its earliest days; Splunk has been integral to the success of our
core business platform, RMS(one)," said James Lord, senior manager of
cloud operational intelligence and monitoring, RMS, a leading provider
of software, services, and expertise for the quantification and
management of catastrophe risk. “Splunk software has proven itself
invaluable by helping us quantify customer demand, right-size our
environment and troubleshoot any issues in real time. Not only are we
able to adapt reports in the Splunk App for VMware for in-depth
analytics, but we are also able to correlate data across diverse
applications and operating systems for a unified view of our
infrastructure and service.”
“Virtualized environments introduce visibility gaps that often leave
administrators combing through multiple tiers of the infrastructure to
solve the most basic of issues,” said Torsten Volk, research director,
Systems Management, Enterprise Management Associates. “Some of the most
valuable insights are gained when virtualization administrators pair
real-time monitoring with cross-tier analytics to support root cause
discovery and other operational analytics such as capacity management,
forecasting and anomaly detection. By extending its correlation
capabilities to include drill-down into the storage tier and adding new
topology visualizations to expose outliers, the Splunk App for VMware
addresses a growing demand for integrated insights across diverse
the Splunk App for VMware video to learn more about the impact the
app can make on your business and operations. Features of version 3.1 of
the Splunk App for VMware include:

maps of your virtual environment, highlighting problems and
statistical comparisons based on predefined, customizable thresholds.
Immediately identify outliers that fall outside the normal
distribution on a statistical map of your VMware environment.
NetApp and Storage Correlations: Accelerate troubleshooting,
optimize capacity and streamline workloads with out-of-the-box
correlation between VMware virtualization layer and storage systems,

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
