Firebird – 1 terabyte database tests and performance report

We have made 1 terabyte database test with Firebird 2.1. Read more. Questions?

In this experiment Firebird shows the following results

Undoubted ability to handle big databases. We are pretty sure that it’s possible to create and use 32 Tb database on appropriate hardware, and Firebird will show the same high performance as it shows for smaller databases (i.e., 1Tb and below).

Good scalability and amazingly small footprint. 1Tb database was created at usual desktop computer and, more important, it can be used to perform general queries: if you don’t fetch millions of records, query’s speed is the same as it is for moderate size databases (10-15Gb).
