"Gran opción desatenada para la gestión de bases de datos"

What do you like best?

Firebird también tiene una pequeña huella. Firebird es muy valioso para el proceso que realiza. Es un gestor de bases de datos muy fiable y robusto que lo hace idóneo para gestionar grandes cantidades de datos de forma remota. Con frecuencia codifiqué el uso de Delphi, en el que tenía ganchos en Interbase, un sabor único de Firebird Firebird podría ser muy efectivo para la actividad que realiza

What do you dislike?

Se supone que la capacidad multiusuario se ha convertido en un punto débil. La disminución de la cuota de mercado de este dispositivo de base de datos en comparación con las diferentes implementaciones de suministro abierto hace que sea difícil encontrar tutoriales, ayuda y diferentes implementaciones. No hay ninguna manera de llevar a cabo la recuperación del uso de las copias de seguridad del registro de transacciones. Hay documentación para tener en línea, pero no es la mejor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Teniendo en cuenta que existen diferentes bases de datos sin desechar, realmente podría proponer buscar en las opciones y notar si eso se ajusta a sus necesidades de mejora. Documente todos los requisitos de su tarea y asegúrese de que las ganancias que obtiene de Firebird valen las compensaciones que debe aceptar por usar un gadget mucho menos famoso.

"Buena alternativa en servidores locales para gestión de datos."

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de FireBird es su facilidad para agilizar el tiempo de respuestas de una consulta,

muy necesario a la hora de crear nuevas bases de datos y gestión de elementos y de consultar elementos. Es muy segura y muy sencilla de instalar, solo hace falta un ejecutable. También destacar

que no consume muhos recursos lo que hace perfecto su uso en servidores remotos con capacidades limitadas. Es un gestor de bases de datos muy fiable y robusto que lo hace idóneo para gestionar grandes cantidades de datos remotamente.

What do you dislike?

Lo malo de Firebird es que es algo complejo de utilizar, a la hora de modificar cosas en el gestor o una base de datos

hace falta un poco de experiencia por que si no es muy fácil perderse.El tema de la seguridad también es importante y con este gestor

falla un poco en ese tema,por lo que no es recomendable instalarlo en servidores remotos a los que pueda acceder un gran número de

personas ya que la integridad de los datos podría verse comprometida.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Este gestor de bases de datos ofrece un gran rendimiento, por lo que si lo que quieres es tener un buen rendimiento por un precio reducido sacrificando un poco de seguridad, FIrebird puede ser tu opción.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gestión de datos de clientes internacionales y nacionales, problemas de Big Data y gestión de

almacenamiento a nivel local. Tratamiento de datos entre servidores virtuales o físicos remotamente con lenguaje de programación Sql.

"Portable, open source database implementation"

What do you like best?

The fact that the entire database is portable as a single file made migrating content from one system to another easy and fool-proof.

What do you dislike?

The lower marketshare of this database system (compared to other open source implementations) makes finding tutorials, support, and other implementations difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Document all of your project requirements and be sure the wins you get from Firebird are worth the tradeoffs you must accept for using a less-popular system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for an easy-to-distribute database system without restrictive licensing terms. Firebird allowed us to easily deploy copies of a database across multiple systems and fulfill our project requirements.

"Easy to develop and deploy"

What do you like best?

I used the Firebird Database platform for desktop based applications. I primarily coded using Delphi, where it had hooks into Interbase (a different flavor of Firebird). It was really easy to deploy applications without the use of the Borland Database Engine (BDE). I'm sure it's advanced since then so other IDEs can interface with the platform via API. Performance was fast and coding using Stored Procedures was similar to other database platforms.

What do you dislike?

Multi-User capability I think was a weakness. Although it supports this feature, it tended not to work very well in my opinion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Considering that there are other free databases out there, I would actually recommend looking at the alternatives and see if that fits within your development requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease of use with development and deployment in a small business environment.
