Overall Satisfaction with FirebirdSQL

Being able to perform well on standalone servers with higher data volumes with well-written SQL has made us utilize it to allow simultaneous connections seamlessly as this large supports our organization's needs. We use it to perform all staging activities as it can be deployed on Linux-based environments.
  • Taking back ups is easy.
  • It is an open source and free
  • Fast performance.
  • Clustering features require alot of attention.
  • Remote access can be quite slow.
  • Low maintenance
  • Its free
  • Easy to deploy, use and run.
  • Cost effective saving us from paid relational database.
  • Community support.
  • Efficiency in handling simultaneous connections.
It is cost-effective, maintenance-free, easy to deploy and use on Linux and Windows environments and it works steadily. It has an open-source license. Installing Oracle was quite difficult in comparison to Firebird.

It is able to handle simultaneous connections when using the embedded software version. It is well suited for organizations looking for standalone servers that can handle high data volumes and still perform well and which is also cost-effective database management system especially when they are working on a low budget.
