Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose now supports Splunk as a delivery destination in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. This native integration between Kinesis Data Firehose and Splunk Enterprise is designed to make data ingestion into Splunk Enterprise seamless, secure, and reliable. With this integration, there are no heavy forwarders to manage or set up. You just create a Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream, stream events into it, and the delivery stream will continuously deliver these events to Splunk. You also have the option to backup your raw data to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose is the easiest way to reliably load streaming data into data lakes, data stores, and analytics services. It can capture, transform, and deliver streaming data to Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, Amazon OpenSearch Service (successor to Amazon Elasticsearch Service), generic HTTP endpoints, and service providers like Datadog, New Relic, MongoDB, and Splunk. To get started, visit the Kinesis Data Firehose developer guide and create a delivery stream to your Splunk destination.
