What is most valuable?

The solution is very useful for stock management. The solution has worked perfectly; I've never run into issues or had to reach out to technical support for troubleshooting.

What needs improvement?

I've never had any issues with the solution, so I can't think of any improvements it would need. It would be interesting if they added functionality with redundancy, reputation, and variability.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is freeware, so it doesn't cost anything to use it.

What other advice do I have?

I use this solution specifically for one database. It's a good product for little databases. We only use this solution for one project. Mostly, we're focused on MariaDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. I'd rate the solution five or six out of ten… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We currently use Firebird as well as Microsoft SQL Server. The performance and scalability of Microsoft are much better, but it's a more expensive solution of course because it's a commercial license.

What other advice do I have?

Firebird can be used in simple situations and in more at-home situations, but there are better solutions out there for bigger customers. That is my main advice to others. What's more, Firebird SQL is a bit cheaper than Microsoft. For what… more »

What do you think of Firebird SQL?

What is our primary use case?

We are an integrator, and we work with customers to implement this solution to perform some audits. We use Firebird SQL with SonarQube for continuous integration.

What is most valuable?

It helps us in detecting all kinds of problems in the code, such as bad quality, unclear code, or any violation in the code or best practices. 

What needs improvement?

It would be good to have more automation and integration with the tools from other vendors.

For how long have I used the solution?

I started to use Firebird SQL two or three years ago in my previous organization, which…
