Infrastructure upgrades remain the most important use case for enterprise open source for the third year in a row, according to the recently published Red Hat Enterprise State Open Source Report. About 64% of respondents said it was a prime practice, up from 53% two years ago, the report said.

The second most cited use for EOS is application development (54%), closely followed by digital transformation, among 53% of respondents. Enterprise open source usage for both application development and digital transformation has gone up 11 percentage points in two years, Red Hat noted.

"The two are closely linked as new applications are a big part of digital transformation. Taken together, they clearly demonstrate that organizations are using an open campaign for strategic purposes, not -only for plumbing infrastructure, "the report said.

Innovation is a major driver. The No. 1 advantage of using EOS is that it's high - quality software, followed by access to the latest innovations and then security, the report said. Two years ago, cost was seen as the main gain, but that fell to slot No. 6 in this latest review, the report noted.

Nearly 70% of IT directors reported that COVID-19 has accelerated investment in public cloud infrastructure, and 90% of IT directors now use EOS, the report said.

Further growth is expected - almost 80% of respondents plan to increase the use of EOS for emerging technologies over the next two years.

Networking (54%), database (53%) and security (52%) are the main areas of EOS use, the report said.


    The skin on security

    Opinions about the security of enterprise open source software and its role in risk mitigation continue to evolve, Red Hat said. In addition to the 30% who said improved security was a key benefit of three, 87% of respondents said they saw open enterprise as “more secure” or “as secure” as property software.

    In terms of risk management, 84% identified open source enterprise as "a key part of my organization's security strategy," the report said. it goes "" ... strict inspection process and commercial testing to ensure quality code. "

    The processes related to enterprise open source in particular are also reflected in the 55% majority who said EOS is more secure than community based open source. But respondents appear to rely on open source software security to help manage these risks, with 83% using an open source enterprise in production, the report said.

    Receptors and Kubernetes are important

    In terms of ship acceptance, just under 50% of respondents stated that worldwide they use vessels in production to some degree. An additional 37% use vessels for development only, while 16% of respondents are still evaluating or testing container adoption, according to the report.

    Further, 69% of respondents stated that they would prefer to use multiple vendors for their cloud infrastructure needs.

    "This result suggests a common option for infrastructure that may span multiple suppliers rather than be limited to one," the report said. Kubernetes grows. "

    In the next 12 months, 30% said they would significantly increase the use of vessels, 42% said they would increase their usage slightly and 24% said it would stay the same.

    Kubernetes is widely seen as an important part of cloud native application strategies for its container orchestration: 66% of respondents see it as “very” or “extremely important,” and a further 19% consider it to be it is "important," according to the report.

    There are still some barriers to the use of EOS, the report said. Notably, respondents cited a support level (42%), followed by compatibility (38%), code security (35%) and lack of in-house skills (35%).

    The report was based on interviews with 1,250 IT executives worldwide, not all of whom were Red Hat customers, the company said.
