OpenLogic Ranks Top Open-Source Projects of 2011

January 10, 2012 No Comments

SOURCE:  eWeek

OpenLogic, a provider of enterprise open-source solutions for the cloud and the data center, recently announced its 2011 trending report for open-source software.

The report ranks hot open-source projects in three key categories: 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. The analysis was to evaluate whether enterprise adoption of the projects 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 more than 250 enterprises throughout the world.

According to the report, the five projects that were fastest growing or gained the most were, in ranking order: HBase, a distributed, column-oriented database system built on top of Hadoop; Node.js, a platform for writing highly scalable Internet applications in JavaScript; nginx, a high concurrency, low memory usage web server and reverse proxy; Hadoop, a framework for distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers; and Ruby on Rails, a highly scalable Web application framework.

“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, in a statement. “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.”
