Devo vs. Splunk: Architecture, Features & Pricing

Architecture: Devo vs. Splunk Competitor Comparison

Splunk’s architecture has more moving parts than Devo’s, leading to a lack of real-time search and alerts, slower search performance, and inefficient storage that results in a lack of hot historical data. Unlike Devo, Splunk requires data to be indexed upon ingest. This leads to potential delays to queries, and can cause up to a 15 minute lag time between data ingest and searchability. The Devo architecture offers real-time search and alerts, scalability, search performance, and 400 days of always-hot, searchable data for historical investigations.

Features: Devo vs. Splunk Competitor Comparison

Splunk takes a modular approach to functionality. If you want the ability to perform infrastructure monitoring, you have to pay extra for the Splunk ITSI (IT Service Intelligence) premium app. Devo, on the other hand, is not a modular product. This allows our customers to be able to access full functionality right out of the box.

Cost: Devo vs. Splunk Competitor Comparison

As stated previously, Splunk is a modular product, therefore charging customers for almost every single feature. This makes Splunk not cost effective and an unattractive option for potential buyers. Splunk’s numerous additional charges for features such as encrypting data at rest can rapidly inflate the total cost and make it the most expensive solution on the market. Devo delivers all of the functionality provided by Splunk, but with a more efficient architecture and always-hot data access, due to its unique architecture. The Devo pricing model also makes it easy to predict and budget. The Devo UI clearly shows how much data you are ingesting per day, and it is easy to spot growth trends that enable you to predict month-to-month ingest rates.

All your data, one low price

Splunk pricing is unpredictable and complicated. Devo pricing is simple and predictable: We are a single-license subscription service. You get access to all functionality for one price, which makes budgeting easy. This means you can bring in more data with a significantly lower TCO. Why compromise on security and IT use cases to save money, when you can have it all?

Keep your data hot for longer

Up to 400 days of hot data is available by default with Devo—and it can go back for years, if needed. Put an end to slow query results due to S3 cache tiers and old-school siloed indexes. Threat hunt across PBs of data while you trend and compare today’s data with data from last year—or last decade—lightning fast.

True multitenancy

One Devo instance can support any number of customers, teams, or divisions with centralized management and global search capability. You can have full visibility across all of your customers’ data and scale up easily, with minimal cost. Data for each tenant is always segregated and secure from other tenants. It’s perfect for MSSPs and global enterprises with multiple business units.

Stop making data tradeoffs

Real-time, always-on

Real-time, always-on

Want real-time search in Splunk Cloud? Keep dreaming. Even on-prem, variable query latency is de facto with finicky data models. With Devo, every query is always real time.
