Overall Satisfaction with FirebirdSQL

We are using Firebird SQL with ECM Software named M-Files. it really made our life easy because it is easy to manage, take backups, import and export. Not only this but it allows us to perform all of kind of staging activates on it. it also allows us to deploy on the Linux based environments.
  • Reliable RDMS for the SMB's and we found its performance is really fast.
  • It allows us to store the physical files into the folder location and reference of the document in the database.
  • Easy to take back-ups, and portable.
  • Need to work on it to save GIS based data.
  • Although it is using third party admin tool but should have it own graphical interface
  • Needs more attention on High availability and Clustering features
  • Powerful and friendly SQL language
  • logging
  • Full Text Search
  • Cost Effective Solution
  • Community Support
Because it is having Open Source License and easy to deploy on windows and linux environment.

Well, it is best suited where you need to deploy the solutions on cost effective database management system. since it is open source solution but if you are really looking for the professional way to handling the database oriented then you need to consider one the licensing like IPL and IDPL.

For the mission critical and large enterprise records and transaction based system you need to reconsider your decision while using it.
