It's been a big year for Splunk. The company, which has headquarters in San Francisco, now offers analytics software for Apache Hadoop, a cloud version of its services, and, to top it off, a new edition of its flagship data and analytics software, Splunk Enterprise. Users who deal with the popular data processing framework Hadoop can download Splunk Hunk, an analytics tool designed specifically to work with Hadoop datasets. Instead of committing resources to technical staff with the specialized skill sets that can make sense of the terabytes or petabytes of data in Hadoop, Hunk does the heavy lifting for the user.
