Last week was OpenStack Summit in Atlanta, and there were enough big headlines to guarantee that OpenStack is going to remain one of the biggest technology stories of this year. In conjunction with the summit, there was a survey on how organizations are implementing OpenStack, what platforms they're using with it, and more. And, as was found in a previous survey done by the OpenStack Foundation, respondents reported that Ubuntu is by far the most prevalently used operating system with OpenStack.
For the latest survey, there were 1,780 responses, representing 506 deployments of OpenStack in 512 countries. Small and large organizations participated in the survey. Notably, the respondents said that they were using the Essex, Folsom, Grizzly and Havana distributions of OpenStack, but very few reported using the latest Icehouse version.
