Java & PHP Software Stacks Market Share: August 2013
It’s time to update you with the most recent statistics on the Java & PHP software stacks’ popularity within the Jelastiс PaaS. As usual, you’ll see the overall numbers, distribution by regions and the monthly trends. This month, the results are more interesting with stats from another one of our European hosting partners, Neohost, located in Ukraine.
MySQL continues to dominate as usual and it looks like other database servers have almost no chance of overtaking it. Moreover, the MySQL market share has expanded 2% compared to the previous month.
Looking by regions, it’s interesting to note that MariaDB, MySQL database fork, is quite popular in Ukraine with a 24% of share.
Here are this month’s numbers in a table format:

Java 6 and Java 7 have remained steady in their percentages: 12% and 88% respectively.
Java 6 continuous to lose traction within the regions.
