According to the data, derived from Black Duck’s knowledge based that collects data from the major open source repos, there are some 2,187 open source cloud projects. Amazon represents 44 percent of them, Azure 36 percent, Rackspace comes in at 13 percent and Force.com rounds out the list at 7 percent
