Splunk Analytics for Hadoop licensing model

I get the renaming of Hunk into Splunk Analytics for Hadoop, however, the product pricing is no longer available on the site, nor are definitions on the licensing model.

Would anyone know who is Splunk Analytics for Hadoop going to be licensed?

On a previous job we had TBs of data we used to query with Hunk. Things were great as licenses were per node and for the non-real time stuff that worked very well.

However, since moving jobs I was planning to use Hunk in here as well but I now wonder if we should start looking for a replacement?

I thank you in advance

From a licensing point of view Splunk Analytics for Hadoop is licensed by the Hadoop nodes (same as it was in the previous releases).

Same product, new name!

There is one difference: Hunk Archive functionality is now integrated into Splunk Enterprise as "Hadoop Data Roll". But once you install your Splunk Analytics for Hadoop license, the experience will be pretty much the same as when it was called "Hunk". Except more seamless.

On the contrary, Hunk or under its new name Splunk Analytics for Hadoop is getting traction within Splunk. I wonder whether the change in name implies changes in the product... not clear yet...

You are right, not much about it at License Splunk Analytics for Hadoop
