App for VMware and Splunk Enterprise Recognized by Virtualization Review in “Editor’s Choice” Awards

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced that SplunkĀ® App for Vmware has won the Editor’s Choice award for the Server Virtualization category in Virtualization Review’s 2014 Reader’s Choice Awards. Customers rely on the Splunk App for VMware for proactive health monitoring, operational insights such as performance, capacity and security analytics, and to correlate VMware data with data from all other technology tiers for true end-to-end visibility.

“In the information age, data is king, and Splunk is able to process lots of it coming from just about any source – OS, apps, hardware – and make sense of it all,” said Michael Domingo, editor-in-chief, Virtualization Review. “The simplicity with which it offers up that data to users is why it earned a spot on the 2014 Virtualization Review Editor’s Choice in the category of Server Virtualization.”

“Splunk is honored to be recognized by Virtualization Review with an award that demonstrates the value that the Splunk App for VMware provides customers in resolving challenges in virtualized environments,” said Leena Joshi, senior director of solutions marketing, Splunk. “This recognition, coupled with the app’s popularity among Splunk’s customers, confirms that virtualized datacenters value the ability to gain operational insights about their virtualization layer in context of data from all their other technology tiers.”

Virtualization Review is the first and only print publication solely devoted to IT virtualization and cloud technologies. The 2014 awards are chosen by the readers of Virtualization Review and presented to vendors in 16 categories ranging from Mobile Virtualization and Cloud Storage to Business Continuity and Virtualization Automation. E-mail invitations were sent to Virtualization Review readers in October 2013 to vote on more than 400 products.

Responses were collected during a two-week period. A team of editors reviewed the results to ensure that they legitimately came from Virtualization Review readers. Vendors were excluded from the voting process and were not, in anyway, allowed to solicit votes.
