Splunk announced support for SaaS Contracts in AWS Marketplace.

The new globally available API capability enables seamless procurement and deployment of Splunk Cloud. The automated and accelerated purchasing process for Splunk Cloud via AWS Marketplace ensures fast time-to-value for customers leveraging Splunk solutions to gain real-time security, operational and cost management insights across their Amazon Web Services (AWS) and hybrid environment.

AWS Marketplace streamlines customer adoption of technology such as Splunk Cloud via a consolidated purchase environment and integration with their AWS accounts, which have terms already established. AWS Marketplace SaaS Contracts simplifies the process even further by enabling customers to prepay for Splunk Cloud based on expected usage tiers through contracts up to one year in length. The Splunk Cloud cost is integrated into the customer’s AWS bill once they subscribe, resulting in a consolidated, easy to process bill. By the end of the first half of 2017, Splunk will offer term-based pricing for extended contract terms for up to three years in length, offering specific discounts for longer contract duration purchases.

“Splunk is an innovative software platform that many of our customers rely on to drive efficiency and visibility across their entire infrastructure, and now customers will be able to purchase multi-year SaaS contracts through AWS Marketplace for the first time,” said Dave McCann, VP of AWS Marketplace & Catalog Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Our customers want easy-to-deploy SaaS solutions like Splunk Cloud to drive data-driven operational efficiencies and speed innovation, with the long-term contracts now possible via AWS Marketplace, they can experience even greater cost savings.”

“With the availability of Splunk Cloud via SaaS Contracts on AWS Marketplace, existing AWS customers can more easily get started with Splunk to gain end-to-end visibility across their AWS infrastructure,” said Susan St. Ledger, Chief Revenue Officer, Splunk. “By offering support for SaaS Contracts on AWS Marketplace at launch, we are excited to collaborate with AWS on this latest go-to-market method for bringing Splunk Cloud to the 100,000 current active buyers, and the growing customer base AWS Marketplace is building.”
