SilverStripe Installation Trends

Posted by Sigurd on 10 March 2009

The growth of new SilverStripe installations each month grew substantially over 2008. The graph below shows the rise in people who ticked 'yes' to anonymously notifying us when installing SilverStripe. With the German book, recent publicity on Ajaxian, and a number of exciting new releases coming out this year, we expect to see the same trends in the coming 12 months.

It is also interesting to share statistics around the choice of web server used to install SilverStripe. We've seen the following split remain fairly constant over the past two years:

The fact that nearly 40% of installations go on Windows was one reason we added IIS 7.0 support in SilverStripe 2.3.0. It also means we'll continue to make Windows installs easier in the future.

  • I think that the windows numbers are greatly skewed by developers workin locally on windows, but deploying to linux.
    I would love to see the project focus on the core needs of Unix/linux based deployment.
