OpenStack Catching Up to VMware as Preferred Private Cloud Platform, According to New Developer Survey From Tesora

In Survey of North American Developer Communities -- With More Than 500 Responses -- 31 Percent of These Early Adopters Also Embrace Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS)

CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Tesora™, provider of an open and scalable database as a service (DBaaS) platform on OpenStack and the Trove project, today announced results of a survey of North American developer communities that found 15 percent were running private clouds on VMware software closely followed by 11 percent using OpenStack. A free download of the eBook summary of the survey results can be found here. A free infographic download of the survey findings can be found here.

Key findings:

  • OpenStack is catching up to VMware as the preferred private cloud platform even though it has only been around for a few years. Of organizations that are using a private cloud, more than one-third now use OpenStack.
  • Many developers would embrace DBaaS but organizations seem to be slow to deploy it.
  • Use of relational databases remains well ahead of NoSQL, whether as a traditional database system or as a service, and whether it is provided in a public or private cloud.

"It's encouraging to see the traction of OpenStack in this early adopter segment of the private cloud market," said Ken Rugg, CEO of Tesora. "These findings are important because they are leading indicators of the kinds of technology and architecture decisions we can expect to see as private cloud adoption explodes and OpenStack matures and more vendors and customers go down this open source path."

Fewer than three percent of private clouds were on Citrix's CloudStack while Eucalyptus barely registered with less than one percent running their private clouds on this open source Amazon-compatible software stack. Amazon AWS was the most popular public cloud platform (24 percent) followed by Google Compute Engine (16 percent) with Microsoft Azure (8 percent) slightly more popular than Rackspace (6 percent).

In the most recent May 2014 survey of its own members, the OpenStack Foundation found just over 500 OpenStack clouds in production. Of their 1,780 survey responses, nearly a third came from small companies with fewer than 20 employees.

The Tesora survey had more than 500 responses, with 40 percent from organizations with more than 1,000 employees and 17 percent for companies with more than 10,000 employees, suggesting that it attracted interest from larger companies than the OpenStack Foundation survey. A broad mix of industries were represented in the responses, with 27 percent from information technology, followed by healthcare at 10 percent and a rough tie at 9 percent with financial services and education. Among the companies who responded to the Tesora survey were developers from AT&T, Adobe, ADP, Ericsson, HP, IBM, Prudential, Ricoh, United Healthcare and Wells Fargo.

Many of the survey findings were expected. The databases of choice for private and public clouds were, in rank order, Microsoft SQL Server (57 percent), MySQL (40 percent) and Oracle (38 percent) with MongoDB (10 percent) the most popular NoSQL choice.

Workloads in private and public clouds were also surprisingly similar. Web services, QA and databases were the most common for both. The top three reasons cited for implementing a private cloud were cost-savings (44 percent), operational efficiencies (38 percent) and integrates with my existing systems (37 percent). Only 9 percent said they cared about Amazon AWS compatibility.

While more than half of all respondents indicated that they are likely or very likely to use their company's DBaaS on a private cloud, only 21 percent have implemented a DBaaS in the private cloud or plan to do so in the next 24 months. Of the people who are interested in DBaaS, nearly all of them were looking for relational DBaaS. Roughly a third (34 percent) of those people were interested in NoSQL DBaaS.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.
