RDBMS on Stack Overflow trends

Stack Overflow provided a great tool for creating charts. This is mine for “PostgreSQL vs MySQL vs Oracle vs MSSQL”.

PostgreSQL vs MySQL vs Oracle vs MSSQL on Stack Overflow trends

PS Oracle and MSSQL have some additional tags depending on version. However, I’m sure we may not include them into statistics because the main tag is always used IMO.


Popularity of database servers by Jelastic PaaS

Today found an interesting statistics by Jelastic platform on database servers used in November 2011.

As before, MySQL is still the leader. PosgreSQL takes second place of honor, followed by MariaDB. Only one of the NoSQL databases MongoDB showed very good results in November.

If compare current data with the October, we can conclude that the number of fans did not change.

Current numbers:

Europe North America Total
MySQL 45% 44% 44%
PostgreSQL 17% 12% 21%
MariaDB 18% 24% 15%
MongoDB 20% 20% 20%

According to the table we need PgConf.eu twice a year. 😉
