OpenStack private clouds are SCIENCE PROJECTS says Gartner

Total Deployments Low...

Regardless of the spin that Gartner analysts provide, there are some key tidbits of information which certainly can be corroborated. Take this little nugget: "Waite said the firm has counted just 740 implementations anywhere, “because the use cases are pretty small.”"

This is exactly what we found when we started working with OpenStack. In fact, we could only find one use case...to provide "less expensive" infrastructure for Platform as a Service, in our case Cloud Foundry. So if you look one step deeper, the real use case is twelve-factor application delivery. And that is still something that is very new. Just look at the total number of PaaS deployments.
