Author Grace Maher - Certified Splunk Consultant
When people talk about sending data to a cloud environment, it is inevitable that a big deep breath is taken by the entire room and an onslaught of security and reliability questions. Splunk Cloud is no exception to that rule, and yet it is still one of the largest growing areas in the Splunk platform - so what should you know about it before you start your cloud transformation?
Splunk Cloud is SOC3, PCI DSS and HIPAA certified, with encryption using SSL certificates between your data sources inside of your infrastructure and your Splunk Cloud instance. Splunk provide a 100% uptime SLA, so you never have to worry about not being able to run your searches or ingest data. All of this is provided on one of the most feature rich SaaS analytics platform on the market, with over 1,000 free applications providing out of the box reports, dashboards and alerts.
Splunk Cloud still comes with all the features that you expect from Splunk just without the management and the hardware costs that are associated with a large scale clustered environment. Cloud Operations ensure that any errors are looked into as a priority, often before you even notice any change or error. Splunk manage application deployment as well as version upgrades, meaning that you can focus on what you want to get out of Splunk - and not what is going on behind the scenes.
