The User Committee's recent survey of 400+ cloud operators reveals the beginning of the answer ...

In slide 16, a hypervisor breakdown is given: http://www.openstack.org/summit/portland-2013/session-videos/presentation/openstack-user-committee-update-and-survey-results

KVM 71% ESX 8% Xen 8% XenServer 5% LXC 5% Hyper-V 3%

According to https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/HypervisorSupportMatrix , the supported hypervisors are: XenServer/XCP, KVM, QEMU, LXC, ESXi/VC, Hyper-V, PowerVM and some "bare metal" support.

Everyone should consider filling out the survey at https://www.openstack.org/user-survey/ !
