Re: Other Splunk competitors
Yeah, there are a lot of vendors going after this space that I didn't mention. Loggly is another one. And when considering big data, I guess we should also consider Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, and HP. They have been all over the data and IT systems monitoring markets for years... and they all make big data pureplays look like tiny companies by comparison.
You're right about open source vendors being inherently small. Linux "giant" RedHat has only $1.5 billion in revenue after all these years. Makes me wonder if all three Hadoop vendors can crack $1 billion -- individually or even combined -- any time soon.
