Splunk Enterprise 5 Arrives


Splunk Enterprise 5 has arrived and its makers are positively ebullient with regard to the latest features in this data search engine with its real-time operational visibility and analytics.

The product is now built with a "distributed indexing technology" that could, potentially, save cash on storage costs in environments where the Splunk software is run as a high-availability service.

As data is collected and indexed, multiple identical copies are maintained. During an outage, incoming data continues to get indexed and indexed data continues to be searchable. Set up and management is done through the Splunk Manager user interface.

"Users need to be able to use their data in ways that help to achieve operational intelligence. We need to put that technology in the hands of developers and IT professionals so they can innovate and drive new ideas. It is for these reasons and more that we created Splunk Enterprise 5," said Guido Schroeder, senior vice president of products, Splunk.

For developers, this release includes a versioned API and JavaScript SDK. SDKs are also available for Java, Python, and PHP. Each SDK includes documentation, resources, and tools to help developers accelerate application development and testing. This, says the company, enables developers to better leverage the Splunk platform by integrating it into their IT infrastructure and to provide a familiar development environment for building big data applications.

Splunk Enterprise 5 also includes features that enable users to capitalize on the full power of Splunk-Hadoop integration. Splunk Hadoop Connect provides bi-directional integration to move data between Splunk Enterprise and Hadoop.
