Every month we provide you with stats on the usage and popularity of different software stacks within Jelastic PaaS. It’s time to update you with last month stats. With over 40,000 developers now using Jelastic, we are getting better and better source for measuring the popularity of stacks which are used in the environments these developers have created in Jelastic. This time it’s even more interesting, because starting from our latest release we support the most advanced database in the SQL world – MariaDB 10.0 and one more enterprise-ready server – TomEE. So, let’s see how things have been changed!
Below it is presented the popularity of MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, CouchDB and MariaDB 10.0 among developers on Jelastic in March 2013. As you see the leader is the same. Our new database MariaDB 10.0 got a very good piece of pie: 4% for the first time.
If we look at the database popularity by region, there are big differences between database popularity in different countries. For example, MySQL is much more popular in the US comparing with its percentage in Brazil.
Here are the current, overall numbers:
Below is a chart showing database usage within Jelastic during the last year.
Java application servers
As you can see, Tomcat 7 is the number one as usual, but this month it has lost some ground: a 7% decrease over February. The newcomer in this competition TomEE has even exceeded our expectations, it almost overtakes Jetty.
Below you can see the population of the given servers by region.
Here is the list of entire popularity.
This chart displays application servers usage over the last year.

It’s interesting to note that in Russia, the popularity of PHP 5.4 is much higher than in other countries.
Here’s the data in a table format:
We’ll continue to keep posting our monthly updates. It will be interesting to see how these numbers change as the Jelastic user base and supported software stacks grow. Stay tuned!
