Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is the most widely used open source server operating system in data centers, but this Search Enterprise Linux report claims that Ubuntu Server adoption is on the rise.


The Ubuntu Server market share is small compared with Windows Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux but deployment is rising.

"John Locke, the manager of the open source technology consultancy Freelock Computing in Seattle, said he’s witnessed an increase in production-level use of Ubuntu and less interest in SUSE.

"'Red Hat has all the enterprise deployments and is as strong as ever, SUSE is dwindling, and Ubuntu is fast filling needs of the smaller businesses and organizations,' Locke said.

"That said, Canonical Ltd.’s Ubuntu Server market share is quite small compared with Windows Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), but the gap between SUSE and Ubuntu has shrunk over the past year, with Ubuntu deployments rising slightly and SUSE declining, according to TechTarget's Data Center Decisions 2010 survey."
