Google Cloud and Splunk announced a new strategic partnership to help organizations drive actionable insights from their data and enable fast decisions with real-time visibility across the enterprise.

Splunk Cloud will soon be available on Google Cloud to help customers unlock the value of their data and provide increased flexibility for harnessing the power of the Splunk Data-to-Everything Platform.

In addition, the two companies intend to tightly integrate Splunk Cloud across Google Cloud, including plans to roll out new native integrations with Google Cloud Security Command Center, Anthos and Stackdriver. This will enable new and existing customers to share critical data between applications and draw insights from holistic sets of data extracted from their hybrid, multi-cloud environments.

Splunk Cloud delivers the capabilities of the Splunk Data-to-Everything Platform as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), enabling organizations to make data-driven decisions and take action on insights from their data without the need to purchase, manage or deploy additional infrastructure. Splunk Cloud on Google Cloud brings customers a single-pane view for investigating, monitoring, analyzing and acting on their data with the confidence that it is secured in their trusted Google Cloud infrastructure. Splunk Cloud customers will further benefit from Google Cloud’s technology capabilities, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, security, networking and data analytics.

“Splunk helps companies bring data to every question, decision and action for both on-premises and cloud digitization journeys at ferocious speed and massive scale,” said Doug Merritt, President and CEO, Splunk. “We chose to partner with Google Cloud to deliver the technology, capabilities and trusted infrastructure required to help businesses connect all forms of data. Splunk’s partnership with Google Cloud will help empower even more customers to harness nearly limitless data opportunities across IT, Security and Application Development while remaining agile and cost effective."

“Data is at the center of every business’ digital transformation and we are proud to partner with Splunk to help organizations build data-driven, cloud-native strategies,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud. “Businesses can now leverage Splunk’s capabilities in data analytics for IT, security, user behavior and more, on Google Cloud’s trusted and secure infrastructure.”

Splunk Cloud on Google Cloud is currently in beta for early access customers, with general availability coming soon.
