RavenDB vs MongoDB: Which is Better? This White Paper compares the two leading NoSQL Document Databases on 9 features to find out which is the best solution for your next project.  

While planing and developing features for Flyway, I often wonder how the different relational databases supported by Flyway stack up in terms of popularity.

These are the results based on Google Analytics page view counts of the database-specific pages in the docs.

This is a very imprecise measure at best, so take it with a grain of salt.

Ranking based on the analytics data from 2013-01-01 until 2013-03-23:

  1. Oracle
  2. MySQL
  3. PostgreSQL
  4. SQL Server
  5. H2
  6. Google Cloud SQL
  7. DB2
  8. Hsql
  9. Derby
Pie Chart

Three big eye-openers for me so far:

  • The Oracle dominance is even stronger than I thought
  • H2 is more popular than Hsql and Derby, combined
  • Google Cloud SQL is surprisingly well represented
