Growth of open-source databases
Database developers and DBAs have been using open-source databases, such as MySQL and PostgreSQL, for years. The platforms are mature, offer flexibility with low license costs and have a huge community following. Plus, they help reduce your dependence on commercial databases, such as Oracle Database.
As their scalability, security and management tools have matured in recent years, open-source databases have become more appealing to the enterprise. Add to that the numerous cloud-based versions available and it’s easy to see how their popularity continues to grow.
