VMware (VMW +2%) takes aim at Splunk (SPLK +1.1%) by launching vCenter Log Insight, a software tool for managing/analyzing the reams of log data produced by IT hardware and software to troubleshoot problems lower admin costs. VMware asserts Log Insight, which is the product of a 2012 acquisition and competes with the market-leading Splunk Enterprise (analyzes log data and many other file types), can be deployed in minutes, is tightly integrated with VMware's vCenter Operations software, and natively supports the company's vSphere virtualization software.
