  3. Splunk is a very small download. Splunk has been built using mostly open source architecture and is a true BIG DATA solution. Being open source community friendly is has 90,000+ free users who contribute to community offering an unparalleled advantage in innovating new techniques, use cases, and value for Big Data challenges. Its simple, robust, and it simply does what it says it can do. All the other tools are good at what they do but because of their age have had to adapt to big data or use multiple components sitting on top of hadoop, mapr, hive, flume, and other technologies to achieve the same thing an 89mb download provides. Try it for yourself for free. http://www.splunk.com

  4. If you want to build a solution, use open source code. If you want to operate a solution, go with Splunk. If you just want to use a solution, there are quite a few out on the market that are cloud based as services.
