Relational Database Popularity Ranking
While planing and developing features for Flyway, I often wonder how the different relational databases supported by Flyway stack up in terms of popularity.
These are the results based on Google Analytics page view counts of the database-specific pages in the docs.
This is a very imprecise measure at best, so take it with a grain of salt.
Ranking based on the analytics data from 2013-01-01 until 2013-03-23:
Three big eye-openers for me so far:
- The Oracle dominance is even stronger than I thought
- H2 is more popular than Hsql and Derby, combined
- Google Cloud SQL is surprisingly well represented
