The Incredible Growth of Amazon RDS

In a new report, Stack Overflow, the leading online community for developers, analyzed its own user data to create this report. The report draws on the results of Stack Overflow’s annual Developer Survey to analyze topics including: the types of developers most likely to use RDS, the relationship between experience level and use of managed databases, the technologies that correlate highly with RDS traffic to various database resources on Stack Overflow, the industries and countries that most use RDS, and more.  Stack Overflow reveals that traffic to RDS-related topics has increased 40% year-over-year in its community discussions. Further, traffic to topics on Amazon Aurora, a cloud-native database with MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatibility, has grown 200% year-over-year. At the same time, the number of use cases and solutions for RDS being implemented by developers continues to expand.
