Talligent and VMblog just wrapped up our State of OpenStack Adoption survey with 647 global IT leaders, and are excited to release our findings.
The goal of the survey was to understand how and why companies are adopting OpenStack, identify targeted use cases for OpenStack, and gauge long term expectations, especially in comparison to alternative technologies.
Here are a few highlights from the report:
61% of survey respondents are adopting OpenStack to combat the expense of public cloud alternatives.
Security model (26%) and lack of Operational tools (23%) were the top challenges facing OpenStack.
Private clouds will not be replaced by public clouds soon as 54% of respondents expect their cloud use to be all or mostly private 5 years from now.
