OpenStack’s top operating system: Ubuntu Linux


While digging into the last OpenStack User Survey, I found that Ubuntu Linux was the most popular OpenStack operating system.

No matter if users had dozens, or thousands, of CPU cores in their cloud, most preferrred Ubuntu.

At the end of the herd, was Windows, Debian, openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES).
