1Organizations Favoring Multicloud Deployments, OpenStack Survey Finds
Multicloud deployments are increasingly becoming the norm, according to the November 2017 OpenStack User Survey. The 19-page report was released at the OpenStack Summit in Sydney, Australia, which ran Nov. 6-8, bringing together operators and developers to discuss and learn about the latest cloud technology developments. One of the highlights of the November 2017 user survey is the finding that nearly half (48 percent) of OpenStack users are also using another cloud technology. Within OpenStack itself there are multiple technologies that operators can choose to use. One service that an increasing number of operators are choosing it Ironic Bare Metal, with 21 percent of production OpenStack clouds now using the technology.
