SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading provider of software for real-time operational intelligence, and CloudShare, the leading provider of pre-production cloud for dev and test, demos and POCs, will take the stage together at next week's VMworld® 2012 to discuss how the Splunk App for VMware is helping CloudShare gain deep insight into its infrastructure performance, customer trends, and business metrics. The session titled, "How a Cloud Computing Provider Reached the Holy Grail of Visibility" will take place Wednesday, Aug. 29 from 4 – 5 p.m. (PT) at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Leena Joshi, director of solutions marketing at Splunk, and Elad Gotfrid, director of IT at CloudShare, will share best practices on managing and monitoring CloudShare's dynamic SaaS environment with Splunk and the Splunk App for VMware.
CloudShare uses Splunk software across their entire infrastructure for monitoring, troubleshooting, and solving customer service issues, as well as for operational intelligence about their business – understanding capacity usage per customer, conversion funnels, and more. As an early beta tester of the Splunk App for VMware, CloudShare has now adopted the application company-wide to help gain deep insight into the thousands of virtual machines supported by the company's infrastructure. The Splunk App for VMware provides CloudShare added visibility into the detailed performance of its virtual infrastructure, helping it track stressed virtual machines and hosts to better balance capacity.
"At CloudShare we think of Splunk as our eyes and ears. Splunk software enables us to understand and oversee every aspect of our operations," said Gotfrid. "The key asset we achieve from Splunk software is the ability to correlate business data with performance metrics. Compiling data about our customers and understanding which resources are being utilized allows us to understand and plan our capacity based on clear trends we identify."
