Microsoft SQL Server regained rank 2 in the DB-Engines popularity ranking
von Matthias Gelbmann, 3. Dezember 2012
Oracle continues to be the most popular DBMS, while SQL Server and MySQL are close competitors for the runner up position.
Behind that we see also a very close score between MS Access and PostgreSQL, with the Microsoft tool still ahead. That means the first four positions are held by only two corporations.
There are no other changes in positions in the top 10. DB2 is just one rank ahead of MongoDB, the most popular NoSQL DBMS.
These are the top 10 DB engines in our December ranking:
|2.||3.||Microsoft SQL Server||Relational DBMS||1356.84|
|4.||4.||Microsoft Access||Relational DBMS||181.93|
|10.||10.||Cassandra||Wide column store||34.21|
In the top 20 we see four more NoSQL systems gaining one rank each: Redis, CouchDB, Riak and Neo4j. Is this a trend towards NoSQL or just a temporary spike in public attention? We will find out in the coming months.
We have again expanded the coverage of the ranking by several additional systems, which you can find in the complete ranking. Please let us know if we are still missing any.
