Software stacks market share within Jelastic: March 2012

Each month, we like to share stats with you, on the usage and popularity of different software stacks within Jelastic PaaS. It’s time to update you with this month’s stats. So, let’s see the stats on databases, servers and JVMs for March.

Databases

Below is the popularity of MySQL, MariaDB, Postgres, MongoDB and CouchDB among developers on Jelastic in March 2012:

There aren’t any huge changes in database popularity this month. And MySQL continues to be our leader, dominating the competition. If we look at the data by region, we see that the usage has stayed about the same.

Here’s how the numbers have changed over the last six months: October 2011 through March 2012.

Application servers

We have a new leader now. As you can see, Tomcat 6 lost 1st place and now Tomcat 7 is the №1 choice now. Jetty’s and GlassFish’s percentage of the pie has stayed about the same.

Something that is actually quite interesting is that Tomcat 6 is still the leader in America, whereas Europeans prefer Tomcat 7.

Here are the current, overall figures:

Here’s a chart showing overall usage from December 2011 through March 2012. We start in December instead of October because in October and November we had Tomcat 6 as the default server, and now it’s randomized.

Java Versions

March really doesn’t have much change to talk about. Java 6 and 7 have pretty much the same percentage.

Java 7 grew a little faster in Europe, as you can see below.
