The Jelastic Newsletter – May 23, 2012
Java 7 adoption, Commercial releases in Europe and Russia and Software stack market share. . .
The Jelastic newsletter is a weekly round-up of news, how-to’s and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week:
Commercial Releases in Europe and Russia
This is an awesome development, especially if you are based in EU. You can now use Jelastic without any limitations through our partner dogado. If you wan’t to see the news release, it’s here
And, in case you missed it, we launched commercially in Russia last week. One of the cool things about our expanding global presence is that it also allows us to provide you with more and more comprehensive data on the usage and adoption of different software stacks.
Software Stack Market Share
Instead of going into a lot of detail (if you want more detail, you can see the whole post on the blog
), I’ll just give you the highlights.
On the database side of things, MySQL continues to grow, while for the most part, the usage of the other databases has stayed about the same. Below you can see a chart showing the usage over the last 8 months.
One of the interesting things about this data is how both Tomcat 7 and GlassFish increased over the last few months and then kind of leveled off, while Tomcat 6 and Jetty did the same but in the opposite direction.
Below you can see usage over the last 6 months:
Java 7 Adoption
As I mentioned before, as our user base continues to grow, our data is getting better and better. In fact, it is now starting to be used by others when looking at Java 7 adoption.
over at the Oracle blogs was looking at the question of Java 7 uptake and usage. He looks at a study by ZeroTurnaround
that shows a 23% uptake versus Java 6. One of the indicators that they used to confirm their data was our Java versions market share stats from December
showing it at 18%.
Well, here is our latest data on Java 7 adoption:
It’s been a few months since December, and I would venture to say that our users are probably ahead of the curve on things, but there you have it. Java 7 usage is at 68% within Jelastic.
If you have any questions please let us know. You can reach us for support at Support@Jelastic or with more general questions at Info@Jelastic.com.
