Linux Adoption Trends 2012: A Survey of Enterprise End Users

The Linux Foundation, in partnership with Yeoman Technology Group, recently conducted an invitation-only survey of 1893 enterprise Linux users. The survey pool was comprised of The Linux Foundation End User Council, as well as other companies, organizations and government agencies selected by The Linux Foundation and Yeoman.

They published a paper that reports on the findings of that survey, with a focus on the 428 respondents who work for organizations with sales of more than $500 million or 500+ employees.

Key findings include:

  • Even as IT spending forecasts remain soft, enterprise users are adding more Linux. Eight out of ten respondents say that they have both added Linux servers in the last 12 months and plan to add more in the next 12 months, with the same number planning to add more Linux in the next five years. Only 21.7% of respondents are planning an increase in Windows servers during that same period (next five years).
  • More than 75% of respondents expressed concern about “Big Data,” and nearly 72% are choosing Linux to support it. Most enterprises expressed concern with the rapid growth of data, and Linux is clearly the platform of choice to address it. Only 35.9% are planning to use Windows to meet the demands of this new environment.
  • Linux users see fewer issues impeding the operating system’s success, with technical issues cited among respondents dropping 40% over last year’s report. Technical issues cited by Linux users dropped 40%, from 20.3% in 2010 to 12.2% today. Twenty-two percent fewer respondents cite perception by management as an issue, and 10% fewer say there are no issues at all impeding the success of Linux.
  • The largest collaborative development project gains more contributions from enterprise users. This year’s survey surfaced a nearly 12-point increase in those participating in Linux Foundation activities, an 8-point increase among respondents who are working on code, and a 5-point increase in those who are testing and submitting bugs.
  • TCO, feature set and overall security top Linux benefits. More than two-thirds of respondents consider Linux to be more secure.

The full report is available from The Linux Foundation.
