Splunk Enterprise 6 Wins Best Cloud Management Award at UK Cloud Awards
Award-winning Platform for Machine Data Recognized for Unique Ability to
Analyze Massive Volumes of Data
SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON -- March 17, 2014
Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time
operational intelligence, today announced that Splunk® Enterprise 6 has won
the Best Cloud Management Product award at the inaugural UK Cloud Awards.
Splunk software helps customers to deliver powerful operational insights from
the cloud and gives a single-pane-of-glass view across on-premises and public,
private or hybrid cloud deployments to proactively troubleshoot, monitor cloud
health and resolve problems.
“Splunk Enterprise enables us to see behavior across our new AWS cloud
platform with far greater insight,” said Peter Raymond, solution architect,
UCAS, an online university and college application service provider. “We can
monitor response times, and often drill down to specific users. That means we
can be more proactive in spotting faults before they occur. We use a range of
analytics tools, but none of those tools give access to logged data. That’s
what differentiates Splunk. There is a gold mine of data in the logs and
Splunk helps us get to it.”
“We're incredibly proud to be helping UCAS deliver a reliable cloud-based
service to students as they find out if all their hard work has paid off,”
said James Murray, vice president and general manager of EMEA, Splunk. “Many
of our customers are heavily investing in cloud migration and Splunk
Enterprise, together with our apps for AWS and Microsoft Azure, is an integral
part of this strategy. Splunk software can provide the necessary visibility
into operational status, security postures and customer analytics in
cloud-based environments. We would like to thank Cloud Pro, The Cloud Industry
Forum and techUk for recognizing the value we deliver for cloud-based
The UK Cloud Awards, run by Cloud Pro in association with The Cloud Industry
Forum and techUk, recognize the best of the cloud industry. The Best Cloud
Management Product award celebrates products that give effective demonstrable
control and reporting of cloud workloads. Unlike most cloud management tools,
Splunk Enterprise 6 was acknowledged for its unique ability to monitor and
analyze huge volumes of machine data, regardless of where it is deployed. By
combining cloud data from solutions such as AWS and Azure and virtualization
information with the Splunk App for VMware, organizations can gain a holistic
view of hybrid cloud operations.
