About a week ago, Hacker News user roryhughes ran a poll asking what database Hacker News readers (or their companies) use. While the sample size may not be the largest, and while "Hacker News readers" is probably not a perfect cross-section of the development world, it's an interesting look at what people are actually using. When it comes to SQL offerings, the top choices are:
- PostgreSQL (621 votes)
- MySQL (496 votes)
And when it comes to NoSQL, the top choices look like this:
- Redis (296 votes)
- MongoDB (218 votes)
