Splunk Cloud Launches on AWS Marketplace

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, announced on April 20th, support for SaaS Contracts in AWS Marketplace. The new globally available API capability enables seamless procurement and deployment of Splunk® Cloud. The automated and accelerated purchasing process for Splunk Cloud via AWS Marketplace ensures fast time-to-value for customers leveraging Splunk solutions to gain real-time security, operational and cost management insights across their Amazon Web Services (AWS) and hybrid environment.

The University of San Francisco (USF) is home to an innovative academic community of more than 12,000 students, faculty and staff. “As a higher education institution, USF prides itself on being at the forefront of technology, which is why we turned to Splunk and AWS,” Opinder Bawa, vice president of information technology and chief information technology officer, University of San Francisco. “Ensuring the privacy of student, faculty and staff data is of critical importance. Adopting Splunk has enabled our small IT team to protect against increasingly sophisticated threats. The availability of Splunk Cloud on AWS Marketplace will make it even easier and faster to enhance the security of our entire AWS environment. This visibility is essential to our digital transformation journey.”

AWS Marketplace streamlines customer adoption of technology such as Splunk Cloud via a consolidated purchase environment and integration with their AWS accounts, which have terms already established. AWS Marketplace SaaS Contracts simplifies the process even further by enabling customers to prepay for Splunk Cloud based on expected usage tiers through contracts up to one year in length. The Splunk Cloud cost is integrated into the customer’s AWS bill once they subscribe, resulting in a consolidated, easy to process bill. By the end of the first half of 2017, Splunk will offer term-based pricing for extended contract terms for up to three years in length, offering specific discounts for longer contract duration purchases.
