Enterprises will add more Linux to support their cloud computing and big data initiatives according to the “Linux Adoption Trends 2012” report from the Linux Foundation.

Eight out of ten survey respondents indicate that they have both added Linux servers in the last 12 months and plan to add more in the coming year. The growth of Linux comes at the expense of Windows servers – only 21.7 percent of respondents indicated they are planning an increase of Windows servers in the next five years.

Additional highlights from the report include:

- More than 75 percent of respondents expressed concern about supporting “Big Data” and 72 percent are choosing Linux to support it.

- Fewer issues are impeding adoption of the operating system, with technical issues cited by respondents dropping 40% from the last report.

Due to the open source nature of Linux, more people are adopting it to host their data solutions, and Microsoft is going to lose out if it does not figure out how to offer cloud computing features quickly.
