We are satisfied with Firebird SQL, and we will keep on using it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. It is overall a good product.

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 for the possibilities it has currently. I'd rate it at a nine or a ten if they added more features like availability.

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 we are using it, I would rate it an eight out of ten.
