Ubuntu beats Microsoft & Red Hat in OpenStack OS race

OpenStack has been in the news a lot… well, we have just had the OpenStack summit in Atlanta after all.

Many say that the “problem” with OpenStack is that it is still regarded as a “moving target” and work in progress, augmenting and updating as it does twice a year.

So what has bedded in and established itself then?

The OpenStack Foundation recently carried out a survey of OpenStack users and found that Ubuntu is the most widely used operating system with OpenStack.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is NOT in first place, it comes in third behind CentOS.

Fourth is Windows, then Debian, SUSE Linux Enterprise and you can read the rest below.

OpenStack collected 1,780 survey responses, representing 506 deployments of OpenStack across 512 companies.
