“Splunk Hadoop Connect makes it easier for Hadoop users to leverage Splunk in bringing big data to the enterprise,” said Arun Murthy, chair of the Apache Hadoop Project Management Committee. “It brings the Splunk and Hadoop communities closer together, opening up exciting possibilities. Software that works in conjunction with Hadoop to gain insight from data is a critical factor in Hadoop’s future as a technology.” "We continuously stream data to Splunk to support and provide insights to our operations, applications, security teams and executives. We are also deploying Hadoop for additional batch analytics," said John Martin, senior director of production engineering, Edmunds.com. "The Splunk-Hadoop integrations will enable us to make the best use of both technologies and keep our Hadoop clusters running smoothly." Splunk Hadoop Connect enables organizations to benefit from the best of both worlds. Quickly deploy Splunk software for real-time collection, indexing, analysis and visualizations and then reliably forward events to Hadoop for long-term archiving and additional batch analytics. Organizations can further leverage Splunk by importing data already stored in Hadoop. This makes it easy to stand up reliable, secure, enterprise-grade big data projects in days instead of months. Splunk Hadoop Connect is compatible with Apache Hadoop and has been tested and certified against Cloudera CDH and Hortonworks HDP distributions.
