Splunk 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

“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 monitoringdilemmafor organizations of any

“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.
