Portable, open source database implementation

  • December 16, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

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.
What 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.
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.

Easy to develop and deploy

  • November 27, 2013
  • Review provided by G2

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.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Ease of use with development and deployment in a small business environment.
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.
