    Splunk Enterprise

    Pros: Splunk is very well suited if you have multiple log sources of related data. All of them can be correlated and tasks can be automated based on the requirement. Other than alerts, Splunk can also run a specific script of your choice, based on some defined conditions. Cons: If you have a few logs but a large number of log sources, Splunk can be very expensive.

    Turbonomic IBM has been great in managing the utilization of our virtual machine with the operations manager feature. It's also incredible in the optimization of cloud storage for data retrieval by improving performance. With Turbonomic we have a better understanding of our virtual machines infrastructure. I however admit that wrapping your head around it is a complex journey but with more training you become experts.

    Pros

    Splunk Enterprise

    • Real-time + Scheduled alerts - i-e you can set up alerts which are actively monitoring your logs
    • Pretty good response time for search results. With our key/value logging, Splunk makes it blazing fast to query the data.
    • Dashboards provide insights into historical data
    • Love how Splunk indexes all of the data and provides keys to search on

    • Presentation is nice. Its easy to understand what your looking at and the data that is being presented to you.
    • Properly identify resource utilization and recommendations for action on how VMs can be improved and resources can be better utilized.
    • It was also able to tell us the same information and analysis for cloud resources. I was not expecting that.
    Chris Saenz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Splunk Enterprise

    • At times some queries can run slowly if indices are not on a portion of the query you use.
    • Setup time initially can be difficult if your logs aren't stored in common locations or in a common way to write the log.
    • Ability to ingest logs from different locations without having to change code to put logs in a certain place (pro and con).
    • Searches can be a bit more difficult to look through if your log isn't pulled in a manner that is easy to read through splunk.

    • It would be nice if the UI included a break-down of features that are both licensed as well as un-licensed. That way, you could not only see what you have, but what you don't.
    • The right-sizing recommendations are great, but very little info is given about why the recommendation is being made. More info would not only increase understanding, but would also help drive decision-making.

    We are using Splunk extensively in our projects and we have recently upgraded to Splunk version 6.0 which is quite efficient and giving expected results. We keep track of updates and new features Splunk introduces periodically and try to introduce those features in our day to day activities for improvement in our reporting system and other tasks.

    We are certainly happy with Turbonomic as a whole and have invested quite a bit of time and effort into learning the ins and outs of the product. We have our reporting setup the way we want it and have gained definite value from these features. I will say though that many products nowadays are offering more native monitoring, reporting, and alerting features which may eventually steer us away from this product

    You can literally throw in a single word into Splunk and it will pull back all instances of that word across all of your logs for the time span you select (provided you have permission to see that data). We have several users who have taken a few of the free courses from Splunk that are able to pull data out of it everyday with little help at all.

    Excellent approach to larger VM organizational management. They have an very clean integrated dashboard that allows us to see everything in our environment and what that is doing in real-time. It works on multiple hyper-visors really well and integrates capacity planning on my local site as well as my cloud locations.

    It allocates resources among applications by showing more on the cost breakdown by cloud service, with metrics on cloud provider information like Azure Management, Identity, Networking, Storage with costs per day, and total services costs. This then could facilitate and show the corresponding actions thereafter upon scaling.

    Splunk maintains a well resourced support system that has been consistent since we purchased the product. They help out in a timely manner and provide expert level information as needed. We typically open cases online and communicate when possible via e-mail and are able to resolve most issues with that method.

    Alex (from VMTurbo) has worked with the product for years and helped develop the product. He was very knowledgeable and was able to provide our support team with details knowledge on how to get our deployment configured correctly as well as help with another VMTurbo POC within another customers environment.

    After buying VMTurbo Operations Manager, I was invited to an online user training event. I felt this training was effective and dug just deep enough to be informative yet still keep my attention. Additionally, the webinar was free.

    The implementation was very simple. Just upload an OVA file and power on the VM. Once it comes up enter some networking information and you can then access the web interface. From there, just begin configuring the system for your environment by adding you license and the various virtual environments and storage through the inventory tab

    I wanted to learn a new language that I can quickly master and implement. Splunk is easy, fun to use and best of all, it can be developed in hours not days or weeks. Splunk is fundamentally a programming language that is minimal but yet powerful enough to collect, analyze and visualize data.

    The problem we had with products like vCOPS, is that the environment should be in a healthy position when implementing them. If placed into an under-performing environment, it assumes and learns off that state being the norm, rather than making a recommendation, then measuring the changes prior to making another.

    Return on Investment

    Splunk Enterprise

    • Overall very positive. It has provided visibility to what is going on within our network.
    • One drawback is the time it takes to get up to speed with the application, but this is up to the user, and Splunk education is excellent.
    • In my field, IT Security, there are few other friends to have in your back pocket better than Splunk. They are just that good.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Turbonomic

    • No negative impacts. The positive impacts it has had, is that we reduced our compute capex requirements by 150K. Merely using Turbonomic's for evaluating how much compute we would truly need during our refresh cycle helped drive our business decision to purchase Turbonomic.
