Passing along most of Amazon's price cut
Splunk's press release actually didn't say anything about Amazon Web Services price cuts, but a Splunk executive acknowleged that had a lot to do with the Splunk Cloud price reduction. The percentage for Splunk wasn't quite as large as Amazon's averages, either, but they also introduced the uptime guarantee (which really demands financial reserves) as well as free sandbox instances. Those cost money, too, so I'd give Splunk credit for a good, customer-friendly move.
