Between April and August, 2021, SODA and the Linux Foundation Research Team conducted a worldwide survey with 247 enterprises, vendors, and standards organizations on trends and concerns about their data and storage environments. The intention of the study was to guide end-users and vendors on important issues, and help them be better equipped to make decisions, improve their products, and to assist the SODA Foundation in establishing new technical directions. 


We are grateful for the support of our survey partners of Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Storage Networking Industry Association, Open Infrastructure Foundation, Japan Data Storage Forum, China Open Source Cloud League, Mulan Open Source Community, and Storage Performance Council.


We would like to thank our survey participants who included CxOs, developers, data and analytics professionals, enterprise architects, as well as professionals in R&D and product development in small, medium, and large enterprises.
