Report Looks at Cloud Software’s Use for Public and Private Clouds as well as Container Support and Telecom Adoption.
AUSTIN, Texas, December 20, 2016— According to a newly released Forrester Research Report titled, OpenStack's Global Traction Expands For Its Newton Release, OpenStack® has “grown into a de facto standard platform for the private cloud market and now serves as the foundation for public clouds, particularly in Europe and China.”
OpenStack® is the most widely deployed open source cloud computing software. The December 2016 report analyzes the state of OpenStack at the time of the October 2016 Barcelona Summit, which was convened to showcase Newton, the latest release of OpenStack software, and plan for the 14th release of the software, codenamed Ocata and expected in February 2017. The report also details important next steps for infrastructure and operations leaders investing in the OpenStack platform.
“In the past year, telcos like CableLabs, SK Telecom, and Verizon have shelved their previous objections to the Neutron networking project and flocked to the OpenStack community, contributing features like Doctor,” the report states. “Leading I&O professionals, application developers, and CIOs at firms like American Express, Disney, and Walmart have embraced OpenStack for their digital businesses. It’s the foundation of many private (and, increasingly, of many public) cloud services that give your company the agility it needs to respond to customer demand, from core systems to the mobile apps that deliver differentiated customer experiences.”
