Hadoop World: Talking to Splunk’s Co-founder

Last but not least in the 10 interviews I conducted while at Hadoop World is my talk with Splunk‘s CTO and co-founder Erik Swan.  If you’re not familiar with Splunk think of it as a search engine for machine data, allowing you to monitor and analyze what goes on in your systems.  To learn more, listen to what Erik has to say:

Some of the ground Erik covers:

  • What is Splunk and what do they do?
  • (1:43)  The announcement they made at Hadoop world about integrating with Hadoop and what that means.
  • (4:25) How Erik and Rob Das got the the idea to get involved in the wacky world of machine data and to create Splunk.
