Timescale, the company behind the leading relational database for time-series, TimescaleDB, created and distributed the State of PostgreSQL 2022 survey. The survey ran for four weeks, between June 6, 2022, and June 30, 2022.
Mirroring the 2019 and 2021 survey results, respondents from EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) account for roughly half of all respondents, followed by North America at 25.9%.
According to DB engines, PostgreSQL is getting more and more popular. It comes as no surprise that the number of new PostgreSQL users experimenting with the database for less than a year has grown from 6.1% in 2021 to 6.4% in 2022.
We introduced more options in this year´s survey, including open source, which ranked as the #1 reason people choose PostgreSQL (19.3%), followed by reliability (16.5%) and extensions (9.9%).
Interestingly, the reason why people choose PostgreSQL changes as the experience grows. Open source is the most important factor for choosing PostgreSQL for those who started using PostgreSQL in the past 5 years.
Reliability and open source are important for those using PostgreSQL for 6-10 years. People using PostgreSQL between 11-15 years choose PostgreSQL because of its reliability.
