@messai1985 - 3 small points should answer your question in brief.

  • Yes, technically, Splunk can do almost everything that Hadoop can do as Splunk has broader Splunk functionality.
  • Everytime I think of comparing two products there is always trade-off.
    • Splunk is really good with raw text data. Splunk can also do structured data but will not perform as good as databases.
    • Hadoop can be after the data that has been migrated from the SQL database to Hadoop.
  • You can also use a combination of both, Splunk and Hadoop:


I hope this helps!!!
