Gerry Carr, Canonical's head of platform marketing, announced today the availability of the results for the second Ubuntu Server Edition Survey. With almost 3000 respondants, this survey allows us to get a feeling of how the server users of Ubuntu are working with our product, and the learnings are always quite interesting.
The Ubuntu Server Team wants to know how you use Ubuntu Server in day-to-day operations to help the team prioritize the support and development of future Ubuntu Server Editions. This is the second edition of this initiative which was first introduced in 2008. It has now been extended to include more cloud related questions.
It's been already almost a year since we started the Ubuntu Server Community Survey... It's now time to prepare for a new edition of it to update our data on Ubuntu Server Edition usage.
If you have a few minutes to review the questions that we asked in the last survey and tell us what you think we should change or add, now is the time to do it.
Bugs reports is always the best way to send this, but if you prefer leaving a comment here, feel free to do so as well.
The result of the Ubuntu Server Survey that the server community, Canonical and Redmonk did a few months back are out! 6819 full answers were turned in, and just that, in itself, is outstanding. If you are part of those that answered the survey: THANK YOU, the data you helped us collect is great. If you were not, well, I guess we'll run another survey soon, so you'll be able to redeem yourself . For your information, the survey had more than 40 questions and took from 20 to 40 minutes to answer, so it was a bit of an investment to complete it.
Anyhow, if you would like to see the document that Gerry Carr and I put together about the survey results, it is available behind this short form. There are some great stuff in there, such as the following graph that shows that about 90% of the respondants consider Ubuntu Server Edition ready for mission critical workloads.
