Firebird works like a relational database to provide standard ANSI SQL features on different platforms. It adapts both to single-user models and company models that run databases of over 500 GB and with many simultaneous clients.
The multigenerational architecture, a key in this program’s success, is the enabler of hybrid OLTP and OLAP applications. Harnessing this feature led to the possibility to simultaneously make the database capable of analytical and operational data storage.
The latest version integrates SQL92 support, manages flexible transactions, takes cross-database queries, and uses defined functions.
Real-time monitoring and safety granted by trusted authentication and single port use make one of the best open-source database software.
