I once visited a Postgres conference. One of the things that really stood out that Postgres’ market share compared to Oracle was measured in the single digits. Which is weird. I run a startup and for me it’s Postgres, Elastic, Go, Python, Redis, AWS etc.. Oracle doesn’t even come to mind, but somehow >90% of the market doesn’t look at things the same way I do :)
Another example is Pivotal Cloud Foundry, which to me seems like Heroku for Enterprise. Not 100% sure why you would use it, but it’s apparently a huge business.
Does anyone here have some good pointers about this part of the market? The community on Lobsters is huge, some of you must be buying Oracle, Cloud Foundry and Elastic support contracts.
