Firebird being used in 24×7 operations

EMC Corporation, the world leader in information management and storage, today announced that Brunel GmbH has centralized and automated the recovery management of its core sales database across 30 branch offices. By deploying EMC’s information protection and recovery management software, the Germany-based IT and engineering firm has dramatically faster backup and recovery processes, better information availability and achieved significant cost savings.

As one component of its information lifecycle management (ILM) strategy, Brunel now uses EMC AutoStart(TM) to provide continuous data availability for a two-node cluster of Windows servers. Citrix file services, such as printing and profiles, reside on one node and Brunel’s Firebird sales database runs on the other.

OSS databases making inroads – Blog of the day

Here is a good link in businessweek on how OSS databases are horning in on
the database market.

I personally think that the majority of database users can do there work
with either Postgrsql, MySql or others like the Borland interbase now know
as Firebird or even Computer Associates Ingres which was recently made
opensource. Really do most company really need all those extra features or
are they just selling feature like Picture in picture was on your new TV
which you never use now. ;)

Here is the link for you to check out:

Open Source vs. the Database Vendors – on slashdot

“BusinessWeek has another spread on open source this week. Among them is an article about open source vs. the database vendors which focused on how businesses are looking to save money with open source (rather than using the source to innovate). From the article:
“The databases work fine, but as data volume grows, so do the checks to Oracle, IBM, or Microsoft. Many users aren’t clamoring for more features, and some don’t even use the bells and whistles they already paid for. They would happily trade some to get their hands on the source code and a better deal.”
