Welcome to Gemini Enterprise! This software-based product greatly simplifies the installation and administration of Splunk based architectures.
Gemini Enterprise reduces data infrastructure complexity to such a degree that expensive IT consultants' time is reduced to the bare minimum. The speed with which new Splunk clusters can be built, maintained and upgraded is groundbreaking.
Version 2.8 extends our existing capability to include all Gemini Enterprise instances, including; remote Splunk clusters, Hardware appliances, Cloud and Virtual instances, to offer improved monitoring capabilities in the form of resource and status at the Management Center.
For more detail on all of these features, including resource requirements and installation instructions, please refer to our Gemini Enterprise - Manage Administration Guide V2.8

Gemini Explore as a Featured Platform
Introducing Gemini Explore!
New from Gemini Data, this is an intuitive visual graph-based data exploration tool that works directly on Splunk, CSV or JDBC data sources.
With this dynamic multi-layer visualization tool, the user is able to drill-down and interact with their data in a whole new way.
Intuitive to use, as it mimics the way our brains ‘think’. On discovering something interesting, select with your mouse to instinctively locate more detail and how it may relate to other datasets.
- Available on request as a free trial with Version 2.8
- Take advantage of our Splunk Inspect app(as shown above), to investigate and monitor your own Splunk Environment in a totally new and intuitive way.
- Ingest your own data by running a Splunk search, or linking to CSV or JDBC sources, and explore how this data using your own Models.
Support for Splunk Workload Management
- Native use of Splunk's Workload Management feature can now operate on a Gemini instance.
- Enable Splunk boot-start to be managed by Linux 'systemd'
- Automatically detects and verifies whether Splunk is running a boot-start using 'initd'. In which case it will be left in that state. Optionally switch to use systemd using the web interface (see below).
- Gemini Enterprise will favor systemd management control as a default on all new Splunk deployments and all new Gemini Agents.
Other Gemini Enterprise improvements
- A new 'unzip/expand' utility can be found in the 'Config Editor' dashboard. Extract a tarball or zip file, using the Extract option (see below). Especially useful for Deployment Server situations.
