Head in the Cloud? Maximize your Operational Intelligence with Even Deeper Integration Between Splunk and AWS
Even more exciting news from re:invent!
In case you weren’t watching the live-stream of the event, you may have missed the keynote announcement this morning about the new service called AWS Personal Health.
