Excerpt From Splunk Case Study


Why Splunk
Family Search planned to move to a continuous delivery model on AWS to increase business agility and more rapidly deliver features to its patrons. To do so, the company needed a monitoring service that could immediately detect changes across its website properties following the push of a new release. This service needed to support the cultural change to a Dev-Ops deployment model. To meet this need, Family  Search chose Splunk Cloud to help analyze logs from all components of its IT environment in real time, without additional developer effort. Leveraging Splunk Cloud, Family Search is now able to identify errors in real time and has successfully moved to continuous delivery with over 900 deploys per day.


The Splunk platform aggregates and analyzes digital exhaust from various sources, including application program interface (API) pulls and log files from applications, servers, mobile devices and websites. Turning machine data into operational intelligence helps Splunk’s customers gain an understanding of what’s happening across their IT systems and technology infrastructure in real-time in order to facilitate data-driven decision management.
