Canonical is out with findings from its sixth annual Ubuntu Server and Cloud Survey, which went out to respondents at the end of 2014. The survey aims to provide an overview of the enterprise cloud market, including emerging and changing trends, current challenges and technology preferences. It also tracks the adoption of OpenStack and Ubuntu as well as public cloud usage.
The current survey had a broad base of respondets. It was completed by over 3,000 CIOs, managers, software developers, engineers and others from a wide range of organisations in different sectors, according to Canonical. The respondents were mostly Ubuntu server and cloud users, who represent a majority of public cloud users, and are the largest group of OpenStack users.
