Thanks for the list, Altan.

I'm a little confused here.
In what way is Splunk a partner of Alteryx if there is no DB connection between these two great products?

13 - Pulsar

I noted Alteryx - Splunk relation as a No, though there is a partnership, look here; http://www.alteryx.com/partners/splunk-inc

I'm wondering about the same question...

Gents, We have seen some customers leverage the ODBC connector for Splunk to r/w data. We don't have a named connector at this point.

Do we have a native connector for Elasticsearch?  I just came across that today with a prospect.

@dclarkgill I asked one of the folks internally who uses Alteryx and Elastic - reading is easy via the download tool. They use curl via run command to bulk write to elasticsearch - but you can use the download tool to write one at a time as well.



13 - Pulsar


 This is the more up to date state of play;


#Elasticsearch, #MariaDB and #DynamoDB are catching up fast...
