"Hunk is an important addition to the Splunk product portfolio. Our
customers love how Splunk software enables them to easily visualize and
analyze data, and they asked us if we could help them do the same on the
sizeable low-cost data stores they've built up in Hadoop. To create it,
we extended our technology with a new patent-pending virtual index
technology," said Guido Schroeder, senior vice president of products,
Splunk. "Hadoop is a tremendous technology full of potential — if you
can get to the data and act on it. We developed Hunk as a standalone
software product to help organizations give broader user groups insight
into their data assets without custom development, costly data modeling
or lengthy batch processing iterations. By providing interactive data
exploration, discovery and analytics, Hunk empowers users to derive
actionable insights from this raw data in Hadoop."
"Splunk continues to increase its value to enterprises by enabling them
to gain insight from 'big data'," said Matt Aslett, research director,
data management and analytics, 451 Research. "The beta release of Hunk
sees Splunk building on its expertise in operational intelligence and
machine data by enabling IT and business users to explore, visualize and
analyze data stored in Hadoop."
