Survey: Cloud Adoption Statistics

French results

By 2022, 75% of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform, with only 5% ever considered for repatriation to on-premises, according to Gartner, Inc. At the heart of this trend is MariaDB, one of only three relational open source databases available in every major public cloud and available as-a-service through SkySQL, the ultimate MariaDB cloud. This year, an unexpected worldwide pandemic disrupted the economy, forcing businesses to work remotely and adjust to new norms. With so much momentum on moving to the cloud, how does the COVID-19 pandemic impact cloud adoption? This MariaDB survey dives into COVID-19 cloud adoption statistics.
