Market share comparisons between server operating systems grab headlines. However, far from seeing one solution besting all others, Info-Tech believes OS heterogeneity will increase, empowered by centralized management tools.

As evidence of this trend, notice these highlights from an Info-Tech survey of large enterprises (more than 500 employees):

  • 96% of large enterprises run Microsoft Windows.
  • Only 17% of large enterprise IT shops run Microsoft Windows alone.
  • 40% to 47% of large enterprises also run Linux, UNIX, or some IBM flavor.

This note examines these findings and provides context for the IT leader's OS choices.
