Java & PHP Software Stacks Market Share: August 2013

MySQL continues to dominate

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.

Databases
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.
