Docker Who? By Acquiring CoreOS, Red Hat Aims to Be the Kubernetes Company
“So while this deal clearly changes the playing field for Kubernetes in the developer space, and probably further marginalizes Docker, it may actually not be the kind of “market consolidation” that used to characterize the maturity of a software platform. More likely, it’s the latest step by a major player in the server marketplace to find a way to capitalize on the success of a product that, had it been commercial and proprietary from the start, might have been a gold mine… except that, had it been commercial and proprietary, no one would have ever heard of it.”

Is Microsoft Azure really making up ground on AWS?
In terms of raw figures, not growth, Azure is still a way behind. Even a generous assumption of Azure's share of that US$5.3 billion intelligent cloud revenue figure for the quarter would put it well behind the US$5.1 billion AWS racked in over a similar period. Dave Bartoletti, a principal analyst at Forrester estimates AWS revenue at US$18 billion and Azure, excluding Office 365 and other non-platform revenue, at US$12 billion for the calendar year. "Azure has been growing faster on a smaller base, yes, but in our view, AWS's growth is still very strong even at their size," he added. "Azure is giving AWS a run globally, and is close to feature parity on many services. "Azure has also aggressively built out global regions and is on par with AWS for global data centre locations. It's a healthy and exciting market, and Azure's doing quite well."

Feel like a little kid in the container world? Welcome to the club
“industry adoption more accurately reflected in 451 Research's survey data that pegs adoption at 27 per cent. Of those 27 per cent of enterprises that have container religion, just 52 per cent are running containers in production, according to the same survey. In other words, a mere 13.5 per cent (or so) of enterprises are running containers in production.”

Good summary of the Apple Watch, namely, it only "looses" if he comparison is the iPhone, but: "Last year, Rolex did $4.5 billion in sales. A solid year for the premium watchmaker. Of course, it was no Apple Watch. That business did roughly $6 billion in sales, if industry estimates are accurate."

Can Google Cloud Platform beat out AWS and Microsoft for future enterprise wallet share?
Good coverage and commentary on the recent Google Cloud stuff, including this marketshare sum-up:

"Enterprise service, AWS, which has a network of more than 30,000 enterprise end users, was the most cited (56.6% of survey respondents) for multi-tenant IaaS interest in 2015, with Microsoft's Azure trailing at 42.7%. AWS claims over one million active customers in 190 countries, and reports that it has a roughly $10bn run rate."

Gartner: Cloud Email Adoption Still in Early Stages
"The cloud email market is still in the early stages of adoption, Gartner said, with 13 percent of identified publicly listed companies globally using one of the two main cloud email vendors, Microsoft Office 365 or Google Apps for Work, respectively. With the majority of companies opting for smaller vendors, the cloud email opportunity is still ripe for channel partners... According to Gartner, 8.5 percent of public companies in its sample of nearly 40,000 public companies globally use Microsoft’s Office 365 service, while 4.7 percent use Google Apps for Work."

Seems pretty crazy, but I'm sure there's sunk costs, security and data handling issues, and, well, sometimes it probably is cheaper.

You always hear about “the post-PC” world, that is tablets and smartphones (mostly smartphones!) taking over marketshare from PCs. In July of 2011, Horace Dediu published a chart that defines the way I think about the tech industry, for the most part in his post "Is the tablet computer a new PC or post-PC?". It’s the perfect chart because it shows when disruption happens and how: from an unexpected competitor and then all of the sudden once you realize what’s happening. It shows how the PC (read: WinTel) “lost” to Apple and Android. Around 2013 Gartner started tracking these numbers (they’d been doing some weird “media tablet” thing before that), and you can pull the from press releases (2013, 2014, 2015) to get a non-Horace picture. Anyhow, here’s the current rev of the chart based on Gartner’s world-wide shipment estimates. Amazing! (“Phones” includes smartphones and “hybrid” devices like the Yoga, etc. The hybrid stuff is very small, a rounding error, so don’t freak out too much about the taxonomy.) Gartner also publishes OS share: in 2014, there were 1.1 billion Android devices, 262 million iOS/MacOS (they combine them), and 333 million Windows, along with a big bucket of 626 million “other.” So, Android has 47.8% share, iOS/Mac 11%, Windows 14%. In doing strategy and analyst work, I feel like I put this chart together every year. What it says is: mobile wins, write apps for those devices. Do that third platform shit! Granted, these are only shipments, not cumulative “existing” boxes. Hey, it’s just a chart, after all. (See also [a 451 report I wrote about Chromebook usage for some more charts and figures on device and PC adoption].)

First, Microsoft and other vendors like IBM still have a tight grip on the largest companies. Gartner analyst Tom Eid—who predicts that enterprise email alone will be a $5 billion global industry this year, growing about 10% from last year—confirms this. He estimates that Microsoft still commands 75% of the market’s spending, versus about 3% to 5% for Google. I like that specificity of “spending.”

Google Partners: Chromebook Sales Take Off For Education, Not Ready For Enterprise - Page: 1 | CRN
Good assessment of the hurdle for wider Chromebook adoption: "Every application that businesses use would have to go through that transformation before a Chrome OS device can takeover in the business world," Campbell said. From trying to use Chromebooks “at work” over the years, I agree: of you’re work is all in on Google Apps and has dumped the Microsoft white-collar toolchain, you’re set. Otherwise, it’s really hard to interoperable with the Exchange, Word docs, etc. And, switching from desktop Excel to Spreadsheets is tough, as are presentations. The core toolchain of the “enterprise” is Microsoft Office, and Google has to go unseat that if they want to move more Chromebooks. I looked at corporate Chromebook adoption and buying in a 451 report earlier this year and came to similar marketshare rates.

Microsoft takes on Chromebook with low-cost Windows laptops • The Register
At it partner conference, Microsoft’s Kevin Turner portrays the company as having 14% device (PC, smartphone, tablets) share: In a world of 14 per cent device share, we have a new mindset: you have to have a challenger mindset. Everyone has to have a challenger mindset. Pretty astonishing if that’s the case, or near it. El Reg covered that a 14% number, from Gartner, earlier as well with more breakout. Meanwhile, some momentum elsewhere: Turner claimed 785 customers had been “rescued” from Google in the last 18 months, that Microsoft is “eating VMware’s lunch” with Hyper-V, that Windows Azure added 42,000 customers during the last year and that SharePoint is a $2bn-a-year business. Some additional quotes from that talk here too, going over VMware account wins.

Google Chromebooks at work in the fragmented PC era
We teamed up with Spiceworks recently to write a report checking in on Google Chromebooks, mostly around their market-share and usage. It was a nice experiment to see how our two pool of data and analysis could be meshed together to investigate how IT is operating in the wild. Spiceworks looked at 71,159 companies worldwide to see what OSes were on their desktops, which gave us some good input on Chromebook usage. Our own ChangeWave surveys have been tracking consumer and corporate buying intentions around Chromebooks (and other end-user device, “PC”, OS selection as well) for sometime, giving us a good mix of data to figure out how Chromebooks are doing. Here’s the 451 Take: When we look at the available data and the value proposition for Chromebooks, it doesn’t seem half bad, and, perhaps, not as far-fetched as a browser-only PC seemed when Google announced Chromebooks in 2011. As on-premises applications continue their slow migration to the cloud, and users continue to glom onto non-Windows platforms like iOS and Android, the end-user device landscape is increasingly fragmenting. Although Chromebooks’ market share is likely less than 5% (if not 3%), the broad, big-name-filled Chromebook ecosystem is nothing to sneeze at, and end users are more open than ever to new PC paradigms. Additionally, there’s an intriguing intersection of interest between Chromebooks and desktop as a service when it comes to supporting corporate Windows applications on new PC platforms. We’ll continue watching Chromebooks carefully, as well as the other end-user device platforms that are finding purchase in the fragmented PC era we’re hurtling toward. Unlike most reports I post here, this one is free for non-clients, so you can read the full report if you’re one of the unlucky ones who’s not a regular 451 readers.

Microsoft exec: I don't know HOW our market share sunk • The Channel
According to tech market beanie Canalys, Microsoft operating systems ran 93 per cent of traditional PC clients in 2013, but the share fell to 58 per cent when tabs were rolled into shipments. Worse still, if you factor in all intelligent devices - notebook, slabbies and smartphones - the software firm accounts for just 22 per cent of shipments last year, down from the low 30s in ‘12. Just the mobile device space and Microsoft accounted for only three per cent of the operating systems installed.

The Four Hundred--Quarterly Server Sales Drop Nearly 4 Percent, IDC Says
Continued soft demand for servers around the world resulted in a 3.7 percent decline in sales during the third quarter, according to IDC. A poor showing by IBM, which suffered a 19.4 percent decline in factory revenues during the quarter, enabled Hewlett-Packard to regain the title as the world’s top server maker. Cisco and the ODMs have growth (and a tiny bit from HP), it seems. On the other end, Amazon is selling out of it’s high-end servers, C3, showing that there’s some sort of demand for higher horse power. Bonkers.

SAP: Oh snap, where is everybody... Are we LATE for the cloud? • The Channel
Hagemann-Snabe reckoned any change would hit the company’s revenue for 2015 but it would have reclaimed any losses by 2017, such is growth in demand. He’s reported to have predicted cloud would lead to sales of more than 20bn Euro by that date. Greater focus on cloud comes after SAP reported a five per cent drop in sales of its bread-and-butter on premises software business by five per cent to €975m ($1.3bn) in the third quarter, reported last month. Software and cloud subscriptions were up seven per cent to €1.16bn ($1.58bn).

So says a recent survey of 155 IT buyers. Also, this depressing note for people who like innovation: Ranking on the low end of priorities are features that get a lot of attention in the market for their razzle-dazzle but apparently aren’t very interesting yet in the real world. Those include the ability for multiple users to simultaneously co-edit documents, which is a big Google Docs feature, and mobile apps for iOS and Android devices, which indicates there isn’t a lot of interest in using office suites with tablets just yet.

Linux is king *nix of the data center—but Unix may live on forever | Ars Technica
As recently as Q4 2010, Unix server revenue was 25.6 percent of the worldwide market, with Linux at 17 percent, according to IDC. By the first quarter of 2012, Linux commanded 20.7 percent of worldwide server revenue compared to Unix’s 18.3 percent. And in IDC’s most recent report covering Q2 2013, Linux was up to 23.2 percent of all revenue with $2.8 billion, while Unix fell 21 percent year over year to $1.8 billion. Unix’s Q2 server revenue of 15.1 percent was its lowest ever reported by IDC. (Windows servers account for nearly 50 percent of revenue, while IBM’s mainframes took nearly 10 percent.)
