Industry Updates

Red Hat focuses on both inorganic and organic growth strategies, such as partnerships, collaborations, acquisitions, and new product launches to achieve growth in the OpenStack service market. For instance, in November 2017, Red Hat introduced OpenStack Platform 12, the latest version of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform.

Canonical majorly focuses on inorganic growth strategies to gain a competitive advantage in the OpenStack service market. For instance, in May 2017, Canonical collaborated with NetApp (US) to supply open cloud solutions based on Ubuntu OpenStack and NetApp storage. This collaboration will help enterprises build automated, scalable, and reliable private and hybrid clouds based on open technologies (Ubuntu, Ubuntu OpenStack, and Juju), making it easy for customers to integrate NetApp storage and data management solutions with Canonical’s Ubuntu OpenStack.

Based on organization size, the small & medium enterprises (SMEs) segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
