A new Forrester Report written by Lauren E. Nelson concerning the viability of the technology and feedback directly from users such as BMW, Disney, and Wal-Mart has been released by the OpenStack community.
As an Infrastructor operator, we've been long term supporters of OpenStack, especially helping to facilitate their goal that the future of infrastructure-as-a-Service should be an open, interoperable marketplace, where customers can move between suppliers with ease.
We were really encouraged by the report that confirmed that OpenStack is ready for enterprise. "Enterprises that were holding back on OpenStack to reach a certain maturity no longer have any excuse to delay adoption."
- OpenStack is ready for the enterprise that was not born digital
- Easy, cheap, and self-service developer access is the dominant use case
- OpenStack has its flaws, but that’s not a showstopper
