VMTurbo Survey Finds 49% Of Active Users Have More Than 25% Of Production Environment Deployed In OpenStack

65% Expect to Increase Production Running in OpenStack in Next 12 Months

VMTurbo, the only demand-driven control platform for the software-defined data center, today announced additional results of a survey on OpenStack with over 1,200 respondents, providing insight into industry interest in and adoption of the open-source cloud computing software. VMTurbo's survey results reveal increasing interest in investigating and deploying OpenStack as a private cloud infrastructure, despite perceived challenges of implementation.

"As we saw at the OpenStack Summit, OpenStack is alive and well, particularly among a growing Enterprise consumer base. It has evolved exponentially as an ecosystem and a community over the past five years," said Eric Wright. "Our survey results validate industry sentiment that OpenStack momentum is accelerating. The idea that it's not ready or too far in the future has been proven to no longer be the case. OpenStack is becoming pervasive in what enterprises do because of the flexibility, agility and speed it enables, and the business problems that an OpenStack cloud infrastructure can solve."

Survey Findings:

IT strategy is nearly synonymous with business strategy, and companies expect to control their IT destiny. IT professionals are increasingly deploying OpenStack in both production and non-production environments, building the cloud and virtual environment that fits their needs.

  • OpenStack adoption is already happening: 32% of respondents investigating OpenStack are running it in a non-production virtual environment, with 12% running it in a production virtual environment
  • 49% of active respondents have more than 25% of their production environment deployed in OpenStack
  • 65% of active respondents expect to have more of their production environment running in OpenStack in the next 6-12 months

Fielded March-April 2015, the survey yielded responses from 1,284 IT practitioners, managers and directors in the U.S. and abroad.
