Today we announced a strategic alliance with operational intelligence leader Splunk. We are excited to be strengthening our relationship with Splunk and expanding the Apache Hadoop ecosystem and we expect this to further drive open source innovation. Additionally this alliance is further proof of Hadoop’s maturation as a key component of the next generation enterprise architecture.
One of the key benefits of the partnership is that it enables organizations to easily take advantage of the massive scale out storage and processing capabilities of Apache Hadoop with Splunk Enterprise via Splunk Hadoop Connect, which easily and reliably moves data between Splunk Enterprise and Hadoop.
This capability means the enterprise can easily use Splunk Enterprise to collect machine data from across the enterprise and deliver it to Hadoop for batch analytics. Likewise, the output of Hadoop jobs can be imported into Splunk Enterprise for rapid analysis and visualization.
