This post is part of our ReadWriteCloud channel, which is dedicated to covering virtualization and cloud computing. The channel is sponsored by Intel and VMware. Read the white paper about how Intel Xeon processors help organizations get unprecedented levels of performance.

BitNami, and Zenoss have released the results of its 2011 Cloud Computing Outlook survey. You can request a copy of the report here.

Only 20% respondents have no plans to develop a cloud computing strategy, but there was a clear preference for using dedicated hardware instead of public cloud infrastructure. Virtualization is very popular, and the biggest benefit respondents perceive in cloud computing was hardware savings.

Another quick note: 69% of respondents use open source software “whenever possible.” Only 3% avoid it entirely. Also, 83% use Linux in the cloud, though Windows is also widely used (66%).
