Database Marketshare: January 2012

It has been a great month here at Jelastic. We are getting really close to our full launch, and we now have over 7,000 users! As Jelastic continues to grow, we are going to keep you updated on what it is that the thousands of developers using Jelastic are utilizing in their environments so that you know what is trending.

As we have continued to grow, so has the number of software stacks that we support. Last month we added CouchDB, the fast growing, open source database. Let’s look at the latest data to see how the database popularity within Jelastic has changed.

So our newest addition took a respectable piece of pie: 5% in a month! And it looks like CouchDB’s 5% came from MySQL’s share.

If we look by region, our new database is preferred more in North America than in Europe, but the margin is very small, so that might change.

    Interesting.
    44%. What? 44% means 44/100 of.. Of what? A percentage is a fraction.
    50% means “half of”. Half of what? In respect to what?

    MySQL in Europe = 44%. Of users? Of servers? Of installations? On the total of servers?

    Why none of those diagrams has a reference to what they are measuring?

    [...] Something to notice was that we also added support for CouchDB, so it is now part of the equation. This month, MySQL continued to stay on top, but it looks like the 5% gain that CouchDB had came directly from [...]
