Usage of Firebird

We have been using Firebird V1.5 since Jan 2005 The size of the database is now about 50MB. There are between 1 to 10 clients in the branch office. The database is designed to be shared by users on a network or in a stand alone environment.

Why we use Firebird

It is powerful database. There are many features that impressed us to adopt Firebird, to list a few:

  • It's a powerful database
  • It's open source
  • It runs on both Windows(Win98, WinNT, Win2K, WinXP) and Linux(Cross Platform)
  • It can run either as embedded server or as a stand alone server
  • It's very fast
  • It's very low cost (performance/price)
  • It's zero configuration for installation on a client
