This IDC Government Insights report looks at how open source software is influencing government datacenter consolidation. Federal agencies have been ordered to consolidate their datacenters, and both government IT managers and commercial systems integrators (SIs) are focusing on select open source solutions and open software stacks to help ease this transition.

"With federal investment, centralized open source solution stacks have already emerged at government sites," said Shawn P. McCarthy, research director for IDC Government Insights. "It's a surprising development, but because of this investment, and because SIs are heavily involved in the consolidation effort, we expect to see rapid growth for some of these open solution stacks."
