The CEO of Redhat is very optimistic for the Redhat Openstack platform:
Whitehurst spent a lot of time on the call talking about the Red Hat OpenStack Platform (OSP). He noted that Red Hat today has hundreds of production deployments across the globe and even more proof-of-concepts are underway including recent wins with Cambridge University, Paddy Power Betfair, FastWeb, NASA JPL, and Produbon, the IT services division of Santander Bank.
In the serious server market Linux is still the leading option (Redhat being the leading company in that segment):
"If you look at something like Hadoop, I think it would be very, very, very rare to find a Hadoop workload that is running on Windows; it is 90 percent Linux," Whitehurst said. " If you look at containers right now, 100 percent are on Linux because it's Linux-native technology. "
