OpenStack Foundation is upbeat about user participation in its cloud endeavor, despite a recent cutback on the project from key sponsor Intel.

The foundation said Thursday that according to OpenStack’s ninth user survey, the open source cloud project had gained 44 percent more deployments and input from 22 percent more organizations than a year ago.
