It’s that time again to update you on the most recent statistics on the software stacks usage within the Jelastic Cloud.  In this article, we’ll present the overall numbers, distribution by regions and the monthly trends of the stacks popularity in July 2014.

For this month we have also added the stats on Ruby usage. In addition, you’ll notice remarkable changes in the regional distribution of stacks because Jelastic keeps growing and adding more partners, recently - (France), StarStorage (Romania) and MyCloud (Belarus).

Regionally, Russia (79%) is leading in MySQL usage. Finland has an impressive 45% of MariaDB users. And the newly-added Romania is a leader in using PostgreSQL (33%). MongoDB has almost the same results in all countries. And CouchDB is surviving only with the help of 1% from Germany and the USA.
