Forschungszentrum Jülich Selects Splunk Enterprise for Operational Intelligence
Dec 9 14
Splunk Inc. announced that Forschungszentrum Jülich has selected Splunk® Enterprise as its companywide platform for Operational Intelligence. The research center, which focuses on developing key technology in the areas of energy, climate, information technology and brain research, is using Splunk software to collect, search, monitor, analyze and visualize its machine data, including different authorization systems. With Splunk technology, the security and network teams have drastically reduced the mean-time-to-investigate (MTTI) and the mean-time-to-resolve (MTTR) issues, allowing intervention before any impact is felt. Previously, the teams had no direct access to machine data, so analysis and problem identification required them to first gather the relevant information from IT administrators - a process that was extremely time and resource intensive. User roles correspond to different access rights, and the machine data that monitors authorized access to the operating supercomputer and cluster systems is gathered and evaluated centrally. This means that employees can easily access the data they need to get the job done.
