Solution has previously been available in North America.

By Alexander Sword

Splunk has announced the international availability of Splunk Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS) at today’s AWS Summit in London.

The real-time operational intelligence provider will now provide its solution internationally through nine AWS global regions.

Customers in the nine regions will be able to use Splunk Cloud across all Splunk use cases, which include IT operations, application delivery, security, compliance and business analytics.

Key features include instant trials through an online sandbox, SOC2 Type 2 security certification, a 100 percent uptime guarantee and centralised visibility across hardware and software deployments.

The service also includes access to features of the Splunk Enterprise platform, including apps, APIs, alerting and role-based access controls.
Splunk, named after the North American term for cave-diving in a reference to its exploration of data, boasts customers including Polycom and Sophos.

It was also announced that Splunk Cloud would soon be available in AWS GovCloud for U.S. government agencies, contractors and businesses.

"As organisations make a seminal shift to the cloud, we are pleased to extend Splunk Cloud internationally with AWS," said Marc Olesen, senior vice president and general manager of cloud solutions, Splunk.
