Cost Savings is the Big Driver for OpenStack

A survey of the OpenStack user base has found that cost savings is primary motivation for deploying the technology.

The survey was conducted by the OpenStack Foundation.  Some key findings:


  • Seventy-two percent of OpenStack users cite cost savings as their No. 1 business driver.
  • The Net Promoter Score (NPS) for OpenStack deployments—an indicator of user satisfaction—continues to tick up, eight points higher than a year ago.
  • Containers continues to lead the list of emerging technologies, as it has for three consecutive survey cycles. In the same question, interest in NFV and bare metal is significantly higher than a year ago.
  • Kubernetes shows growth as a container orchestration tool.
  • Seventy-one percent of deployments catalogued are in “production” versus in testing or proof of concept. This is a 20 percent increase year over year.
  • OpenStack is adopted by companies of every size. Nearly one-quarter of users are organizations smaller than 100 people.
