MongoDB Overtakes Access

MongoDB has come higher than Microsoft Access for the first time in the DB-Engines.com popularity rankings.

The NoSQL database is only just behind IBM DB2, following a rise in ratings this year. Among the reasons why it is likely to be rising so fast is its uptake by big-name companies. Red Hat Enterprise Linux now includes MongoDB, IBM has added support for MongoDB’s JSON query language enabling developers to use it to query data stored in DB2 and WebSphere, and Rackspace has announced more support for MongoDB on its cloud platform.

The top ten rankings this month are:

 

The DB-Engines Ranking is calculated as a measure of popularity using the following indicators:

  • The number of mentions a database on websites (measured as number of results in search engines queries)
  • General interest in the database based on the frequency of searches in Google Trends
  • Frequency of technical discussions about the database from related questions and the number of interested users on Q&A sites Stack Overflow and DBA Stack Exchange
  • Number of job offers in which the database is mentioned listed on Indeed and Simply Hired
  • Number of profiles in LinkedIn that mention the database

As you can see from the scores, MongoDB still has a long way to go before its position will be worrying Oracle, MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server.
