The OpenStack Pulse 2014

executive summary Executive Summary

OpenStack emerged four years ago as an open source platform for building private and public cloud environments. In a relatively short time, it has gained a great deal of interest from hardware and software vendors, service providers, enterprises, and the investment community. The project has seen increased momentum recently as more developers and end users have united to build out OpenStack's capabilities.

This report offers an annual 'pulse check' on the OpenStack business models that have evolved over the past four years, including quantitative market-sizing data, regional perspectives, use cases and customer-survey feedback. It covers a variety of software vendors and service providers that are leveraging OpenStack both internally and for commercial offerings, and provides up-to-date insight into the developing OpenStack distribution battles and ongoing debates about functionality and overall project governance.
