Plastic SCM using Firebird
Codice Software, authors of Plastic SCM (Source Control System) uses Firebird to store all the projects information data.
So then we decided Firebird would be an important part of the product. And I can tell you this is one of the decissions we never regret. BTW we wanted to have a full portable data layer (in terms of DB independency), so we also tried with Postgres (specially on Linux and Solaris) and later on with SQL Server. Results? Firebird is the easiest to deploy and has a very good performance ratio (and we always find ways to tune it even further), Postgres is a bit faster in some operations but extremely slow dealing with BLOB data and SQL Server is faster but much harder to deploy. So we are proud to tell that Firebird is a center piece of Plastic SCM.
