Splunk announced Splunk Observability Cloud is now available in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) via the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region.

With the Splunk Observability Cloud, DevOps, IT Operations and software development teams can answer any question about the performance and health of their applications, services and infrastructure with metrics, traces and logs - all data collected in real time, without sampling and at any scale. By providing services on AWS in ANZ, enterprises now have options to retain data closer to home with low latency, which is an important requirement for observability. This also helps Australian organizations meet compliance requirements associated with data residency.

“... Splunk Observability Cloud provides DevOps, IT Operations and software development teams with all the capabilities they need for observability in one integrated interface, enabling organizations to monitor and analyse their applications and infrastructure in real time." said Mark Troselj, Group VP of Australia and New Zealand, Splunk.

“AWS supports hundreds of thousands of organisations across Australia and New Zealand to continuously innovate, succeed, and grow globally,” said Sumal Karunanayake, Head of Partner Success, Amazon Web Services, Australia and New Zealand. “With Splunk Observability Cloud on AWS, local enterprises who are increasingly focused on user experience, app modernisation, and innovation, can quickly gain visibility of their technology infrastructure and IT applications, and accelerate improvements that support digital transformation – all with the data staying local
to Australia and New Zealand.”

The Splunk Observability Cloud brings together the world’s best-in-class solutions for infrastructure monitoring, application performance monitoring, real user monitoring, synthetic monitoring, log investigation and incident response. Backed by Splunk’s NoSample full-fidelity data ingestion, real-time streaming analytics and massive scalability, Splunk Observability Cloud delivers unprecedented capabilities for monitoring, troubleshooting and resolution of business-critical incidents. The full observability portfolio from Splunk includes Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, Splunk APM, Splunk RUM, Splunk Synthetic Monitoring, Splunk Log Observer, Splunk IT Service Intelligence and Splunk On-Call.

Splunk announced the following new features to its unified security and observability platform:

- Splunk Log Observer Connect allows customers to visualize all their data in one place by combining the power of Splunk Cloud Platform, Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Observability Cloud, enabling site reliability engineers and DevOps engineers to access their metrics, traces, and Splunk Cloud or Splunk Enterprise logs in a single interface for faster, in-context debugging.

- Splunk Incident Intelligence, now in preview, helps DevOps teams investigate incidents and take action to ensure better system resilience by providing event correlation, incident response and on-call routing, collaboration, and automation - all within a unified workflow.

The Splunk Observability Cloud is optimized and designed to consume and manage OpenTelemetry data at scale enabling customers to unlock their data through open source standards. Splunk Observability Cloud is OpenTelemetry-native allowing customers to unify data ingestion without vendor lock-in and reduce resource consumption with the lightweight, open-source OpenTelemetry instrumentation.

As data volume and organizational complexities increase, Splunk wants to keep pricing simple and this bundle is designed to do that. With the Splunk Observability Cloud, Splunk is integrating these capabilities under one clear host-based pricing metric directly tied to the value DevOps, IT Operations and software development teams may gain.
