Alfresco Releases 'Open Source Barometer'

Lora Bentley

A new survey from Alfresco Software says that deployments of Red Hat have increased twice as fast as deployments of Novell's SuSE since the latter inked collaboration agreements with Microsoft. The finding suggests customers don't like terms of the agreement, says Alfresco's Ian Howells.

But that's not all the survey revealed. Earthtimes.org reports that the Open Source Barometer surveyed 10,000 Alfresco community members on their use of enterprise open source software -- from operating systems to browsers or portals. Key findings, as set out in the press release:

  • Users evaluated Alfresco as much on Windows as they did on different flavors of Linux, but they strongly preferred to deploy production systems on Linux.
  • Users strongly preferred open source Tomcat or JBoss over the leading proprietary offerings.
  • Overwhelmingly, users test and deploy on MySQL, with PostgreSQL a surprisingly close second for both evaluations and production deployment.
  • To access the Alfresco ECM repository, users preferred browsers over portals.

Alfresco plans to update the barometer every six months -- to provide the industry with "a leading indicator of enterprise open source adoption trends," says Howells.
