ARM Linux gains embeddable SQL database

The Firebird Project has ported its lightweight, open-source database to the ARM architecture. The project is looking for help testing a new Firebird 2.1 RC2 release, which in addition to ARM support, adds database triggers, temporary and monitoring tables, common table expressions, and recursive queries

[ED: ok the arm port is not merged in the cvs yet but the code is already there in debian’s git or private patches, please ask on devel-list]

Firebird Project has now ports for the top4 embedded processors

Firebird Project has now ports for the top4 embedded processors used in small devices like phones
The top cpu used in that area are arm,x86,mips,powerpc according to linuxdevices survey

Here are the build results for firebird2.0 package on debian on main cpu architectures used in debian

The latest port is for arm cpu , and here is the devel-thread

RAID 10 performance tradeoffs and firebird

I have been configuring a fair number of Linux database servers for a line-of-business application; it runs the Firebird SQL database in server mode only (no application code at all – just DB).

All of these are the wonderful Dell PowerEdge 2950 units with the PERC6i RAID controller, and my typical configuration is 6x 146G 15k SAS drives. These are the highest-performance, highest capacity solution in 3.5″ drives.
