The State of Cloud Computing in 2011 (Infographic)

BitNami, and Zenoss have released the results of its 2011 Cloud Computing Outlook survey. You can request a copy of the report here.

Only 20% respondents have no plans to develop a cloud computing strategy, but there was a clear preference for using dedicated hardware instead of public cloud infrastructure. Virtualization is very popular, and the biggest benefit respondents perceive in cloud computing was hardware savings.

Another quick note: 69% of respondents use open source software “whenever possible.” Only 3% avoid it entirely. Also, 83% use Linux in the cloud, though Windows is also widely used (66%).
