Splunk on Tuesday rolled out version 3.1 of its app for VMware. The company said the upgrade provides out-of-the-box reports and analytics that speed data drilldown within VMware's virtualization framework. 

Features of the latest app iteration include advanced mapping visualizations, which Splunk said enables the immediate identification of outliers on a statistical map of a VMware environment, as well as NetApp and storage correlations that optimize capacity and accelerate troubleshooting. 

Splunk also added a predictive element in the upgrade, a feature that allows users to gain visibility into potential security breaches and non-compliant usage patters, and forecast future resource CPU.

Leena Joshi, Splunk's senior director of infrastructure operations marketing, highlighted the apps ability to provide eal-time and historical insights into the virtualization layer:  

Enterprise clouds based on VMware are transforming traditional data centers and driving the need for operational visibility across all infrastructure and application tiers. The latest version of the Splunk App for VMware pre-packages correlations across virtualization and storage tiers to help organizations tackle the hardest operational problems. 

Last month Splunk released similar upgrades to its app for Microsoft Exchange, with the common focus on out-of-the-box usability that could be indicative of its market strategy.
