BROOMFIELD CO January 4, 2012 - OpenLogic, Inc., provider of enterprise open source solutions for the cloud and the data center, today announced its 2011 trending report for open source in three key categories, including web and application servers; application frameworks; and databases and big data.
To develop its report, OpenLogic analyzed popular as well as up-and-coming open source projects that are used as core infrastructure in enterprise applications in order to evaluate whether enterprise adoption was trending up, staying level or trending down. For each open source project, OpenLogic analyzed eight metrics that include public data, as well as aggregated data from OpenLogic's tools and customer base of over 250 enterprises worldwide.
OpenLogic also evaluated each category and categorized projects as "trending up" (up across most or all metrics), "trending level" (up and down on a roughly equal number of metrics), or "trending down" (down across all or most metrics).
Trending Up: Node.js and nginx
Trending Level: Tomcat and Apache HTTP Server

"OpenLogic has a 360 degree view of how open source is being deployed in the enterprise and in the cloud," said Kim Weins, senior vice president of marketing at OpenLogic. "The projects that allow organizations to efficiently scale their operations and manage Big Data are by far outpacing the growth of other open source projects. We expect to see many of these up and coming projects continue to challenge the traditional open source leaders over the coming year."
The OpenLogic report ranked year over year (January 2010 through November 2010 and January 2011 through November 2011) data based on growth (or loss) on eight metrics:
Public data: Google search volume.
OpenLogic OLEX and Scanner: The report evaluated OLEX search volume, views of packages, downloads, requests within corporations to use the project and matches against the project during scans. OpenLogic OLEX is a Software-as-a-Service solution for the comprehensive governance and provisioning of open source software used by many Fortune 100 companies.
OpenLogic CloudSwing and Support Contracts: OpenLogic aggregated data on customers purchasing support contracts from OpenLogic for each project, as well as projects that users deployed through OpenLogic CloudSwing, an open PaaS platform.
OpenLogic will examine the results of their 2011 trending report in an upcoming webinar: "5 Must-Watch Trends for Open Source in the Enterprise"Wednesday, January 18, 20122:00-3:00pm ET (11:00am-12:00pm PT)To register, please visit: http://openlogic.com/news/events.php
