With CloudOpen Europe now less than two weeks away, we took another look at the data from the recent open cloud survey, conducted by Linux.com and The New Stack. Three surprising conclusions emerged that aren’t necessarily obvious on a quick read through the survey results.
1. Open source contributors are motivated by a vibrant, engaged community and prioritize performance and security over other features.
2. Just because a project is popular doesn’t mean it’s yet widely used.
3. Participants in open source projects should consider contributions in the areas of documentation, installation and configuration management.
The following infographic explains these findings nicely.
