Splunk Review

It is a place for all our logs and everything goes in one place.

What is our primary use case?

We use it for log analysis and alerting, and our stock analysts use it.

I have used the product for more than five years. Then, in the cloud, I have used it for probably a year. It scales better in the cloud than on-premise.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a place for all our logs, and everything goes in one place. The stock analysts and security people use one single dashboard (one single location) to check our logs.

What is most valuable?

  • Easy indexing.
  • The solution is faster.

What needs improvement?

Every product needs improvement. If we can get a faster product, we will take it. There are new services which are coming up. If Splunk can catch up with the speed of Amazon, and with the integration, instead of us waiting for another year or so, that would be good.

We would like more integrations with other cloud products, not just AWS, e.g., Azure.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. We stress it at 98 percent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The AWS scalability is pretty good. We currently have it running on three servers.

How is customer service and technical support?

Other teams have told me that the technical support is pretty good.

How was the initial setup?

For the few integrations that we have already made, these have been easy to do.

What was our ROI?

We have seen ROI.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Splunk is not free.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend trying different stuff based on your company's needs and log types.

We like the product.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
