MySQL, PostgreSQL and Redis are the winners of the March ranking
MySQL increased its popularity score by 26.59 points, the biggest gain this month, and comes close to its all-time high from March 2013.
PostgreSQL gained 10.97 points (an increase of almost 4%) and pulverized its all-time high from last month.
While all these systems are open-sourced, with Microsoft SQL Server (-10.73 points), DB2 (-6.55 points) and Oracle (-4.13 points) we have 3 commercially licensed systems on the other end of the list. That underpins the long-term trend, we are measuring for open-source systems.
Other notable actualities of this months ranking:
- Elasticsearch is showing one of the most impressive trends over the last 3 years. This month it again gained one rank and we would not be surprised to find it within the top 10 systems soon.
- Neo4j entered the top 20 systems for the first time.
- Two systems, which we have simply neglected yet, showed a remarkable debut: Realm, which is often used for mobile applications as a replacement for SQLite on rank 75 and 4D (former name 4th Dimension), a proven application development environment with an integrated DBMS on rank 94.
