Alexey Kovyazin and Dmitry Yemanov were present at Softool 2006, showing a really big test drive for Firebird:
The test used a Russian ERP called Avarda connecting a Firebird 2.0 Classic server. Environment was 30 desktops and 1 power server imitating Avarda working with 100 simulatenous clients accessing a 120Gb Firebird database with 700 million records! Server was a SMP machine (2 CPUs – Dell PowerEdge 2950) and 6GB RAM.
