As we continue to grow and our user base gets bigger and bigger, our sample size gets better and better as we look at database usage percentages. So, let’s look at the data for this month.
Below is the overall usage of databases within Jelastic for the month of February.
As you can see, there are no big changes in database popularity this month. MySQL is still the overall leader. MariaDB is in second place in the SQL databases and PosgreSQL follows it not far behind.
