The LAMP stack rules in the scale-out world. Is there a major web property that doesn’t run on MySQL? However, as we shift to a cloud infrastructure for software, it’s not about stacks any longer. It’s about mixing and matching the most suitable pieces of software, connecting them through APIs in templated images we run on virtual machines – on-premise or in the cloud, or both. The same application may run MySQL, a NoSQL product and Hadoop. We have many more combinations than just a few years ago.
