Undefined

Firebird is a relational database that offers many ANSI SQL-99 features. Firebird is high performance and has powerful language support for stored procedures and triggers.

The Firebird server is available in three flavors:

  • Super Server
  • Classic
  • Embedded.

You can start with SuperServer. Classic is recommended for use with SMP machines and certain other specific situations. SuperServer shares its cache among database connections and uses threads to handle each connection.

Classic launches an independent server process for each connection.

The software comes with a complete set of command line tools that enable users to create databases, retrieve database statistics, run SQL commands, miscellaneous scripts, perform backup and restore.

Alternatively, for users who prefer to use a GUI (Graphical User Interface) frontend, there are many options to choose from, including free.

Firebird is used with many large databases and most connections. It has been used on production systems under several different names since 1981, making it a very mature and stable application.
