Splunk is a powerful data analytics platform that collects, indexes, and analyzes data from virtually any source, including application and machine-generated data in a searchable repository from which it can generate meaningful insights. Splunk makes this data available and usable to organizations to quickly analyze and gain insights into application problems, security, compliance, and web analytics issues. Splunk works very well for enterprises that are required to store and process large volumes of data when used with a scalable, highly available, cost-effective solution.
