How's Your Cloud Looking These Days?

If you want to know, check out this visual showing the results of a report compiled by BitNami, Cloud and Zenoss via ReadWriteWeb. All respondents, save 20% polled, have some plans to utilize the cloud in 2011.

Linux is the most popular cloud operating system, and a whopping 60% prefer to use open source software whenever possible. Wow. Scalability, savings and easier management are the most cited reasons for “going cloud.” Are you in the cloud or do you plan to do so in the near future? What are your reasons?
