Executive Summary

This white paper presents IDC's perspectives on the changing opportunity for Linux server operating environment (SOE) deployments and the workloads that are supported by Linux. This papers considers both workload data and the ecosystem that has grown up to support the opportunity for Linux deployments, including application software, application development and deployment software, and infrastructure software. Economic downturns are not a new phenomena, nor are the recoveries that follow them, in which new competitors emerge and thrive and old-line vendors sometimes lose market share or cease to be competitive in the new world.
