The Cloud Database Report 2022 & Top 20 Vendors
In-depth analysis on the latest trends and leading providers in the cloud database market
Today I’m sharing the new Cloud Database Report 2022, which includes an updated list of the Cloud Database Top 20 vendor companies. This in-depth report is available to all subscribes as a PDF download. (Note: Substack has not enabled a PDF preview feature yet.)
This 16-page Report and Cloud Database Top 20 mark the beginning of a new & improved Cloud Database Report news and analysis platform. I launched the Cloud Database Report a year ago, in February 2021, on the Cloud Wars website. Recently, I moved all blog posts and podcasts to a new home on Substack, which gives me more flexibility in publishing all kinds of content.
Hundreds of people from around the world now subscribe to the Cloud Database Report. They are business and technology professionals with companies such as Deloitte, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, MongoDB, Oracle, Salesforce, SAP, SAS, Snowflake and many more, and in industries including financial services, retail, government, and education.
As we head into this new year, I will be delivering even more news, analysis, exclusive interviews, podcasts, and in-depth reports. For readers who want my soup-to-nuts coverage, I’m introducing a new paid subscription, for $15 per month or $150/year. For everyone else, free subscriptions will continue to be available with access to posts similar to ones you have been receiving.
What’s Inside the Cloud Database Report 2022
The just-released Cloud Database Report 2022 provides a bird’s eye view of the major trends driving the cloud database market. As I write in the Report, innovations in the database market are coming so fast that it’s hard to keep up with it all. As someone who has covered the database market since the mid-90s, I think of it as a Renaissance of database technologies.
The Report covers:
Competition between traditional vendors like Oracle, IBM, and Teradata and emerging providers such as Cockroach Labs and Yugabyte
Growing influence of Snowflake’s data cloud model
Debate over purpose-built vs. all-purpose databases
Challenges of database migrations
Updated Cloud Database Top 20, including three companies that have joined the list

In recent months, I have been briefed by a Who’s Who of data management companies: AWS, Cockroach Labs, Couchbase, Databricks, DataStax, Google Cloud, InterSystems, Matillion, Microsoft, Ocient, Oracle, Pinecone, Redis, SAP, SingleStore, Snowflake, Teradata, TileDB, Yellowbrick, Yugabyte, and others.
That list will keep growing as more challengers join the fray. I invite you to join me as the battle heats up among the traditional “legacy” vendors, the Big 3 public cloud providers, and the fast emerging cloud-native newcomers.
By my calculation, the amount of data stored in some enterprise environments has increased 1 million times over the past 25 years. There’s no simple solution to the world of booming data. It requires strategy, architecture, platforms, and people. The Cloud Database Report will give you straight talk on how we do it.
