Splunk Announces Beta Version Of Hunk: Splunk Analytics For Hadoop (Graphic: Business Wire)

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced the beta version of Hunk: Splunk® Analytics for Hadoop. Hunk (beta) is a new software product from Splunk that integrates exploration, analysis and visualization of data in Hadoop. Building upon Splunk’s years of experience with big data analytics technology deployed at thousands of customers, Hunk drives dramatic improvements in the speed and simplicity of interacting with and analyzing data in Hadoop without programming, costly integrations or forced data migrations. Watch the Hunk video to learn more.

“Hunk is an important addition to the Splunk product portfolio. Our customers love how Splunk software enables them to easily visualize and analyze data, and they asked us if we could help them do the same on the sizeable low-cost data stores they’ve built up in Hadoop. To create it, we extended our technology with a new patent-pending virtual index technology,” said Guido Schroeder, senior vice president of products, Splunk. “Hadoop is a tremendous technology full of potential – if you can get to the data and act on it. We developed Hunk as a standalone software product to help organizations give broader user groups insight into their data assets without custom development, costly data modeling or lengthy batch processing iterations. By providing interactive data exploration, discovery and analytics, Hunk empowers users to derive actionable insights from this raw data in Hadoop.”

“Splunk continues to increase its value to enterprises by enabling them to gain insight from 'big data',” said Matt Aslett, research director, data management and analytics, 451 Research. “The beta release of Hunk sees Splunk building on its expertise in operational intelligence and machine data by enabling IT and business users to explore, visualize and analyze data stored in Hadoop.”

Rapid Insights and Value, No Programming or Integrations

Hunk (beta) is for organizations that are seeking a faster, simpler way to explore, analyze, visualize and share data being stored in Hadoop. Key features include:

  • Splunk Virtual Index (patent pending): Splunk virtual index technology enables the seamless use of the entire Splunk technology stack, including the Splunk Search Processing Language (SPL), for interactive exploration, analysis and visualization of data stored anywhere, as if it was stored in a Splunk software index. Hunk uses this foundational technology and is the first product to come from this innovation.
  • Explore Data in Hadoop from One Place: Hunk is designed for interactive data exploration across large, diverse data sets. There is no requirement to “understand” data upfront, simply point Hunk at the Hadoop cluster and start exploring data immediately.
  • Interactive Analysis of Data in Hadoop: Hunk enables users to drive deep analysis, detect patterns and find anomalies across terabytes and petabytes of data. Users can correlate data to spot trends, identify patterns of interest and enrich insights even further by connecting data from external relational databases using Splunk DB Connect.
  • Report on and Visualize Data in Hadoop: Users can build advanced graphs and charts on-the-fly to make their data more meaningful. Share these with other users on laptops, tablets or other mobile devices.
  • Create Custom Dashboards: Hunk users can combine multiple charts, views and reports into role-specific dashboards which can be viewed and edited on laptops, tablets or other mobile devices. Hunk also allows users to ensure secure access with role-based access controls.

Hunk is Splunk’s latest offering to address challenges interacting with and extracting value from data in Hadoop, in addition to Splunk Hadoop Connect and the Splunk App for HadoopOps. Splunk Hadoop Connect provides bi-directional integration with Splunk Enterprise while the Splunk App for HadoopOps monitors the entire Hadoop deployment from Splunk Enterprise.
