Subject Firebird performance with much data
Author Geert Bevin

I'm in the process of having to recommend a database server for a new
project. I've been using Firebird until now mainly as an embedded
database for standalone applications under linux. This project however
requires a JDBC connection to a standalone database server which will
contain millions of rows in a simple database structure. The structure
consist of a few tables with only long integers and varchars. Really
nothing fancy. The queries are also expected to be very simple with a
maximum of one join.

My question is, has anybody trusted Firebird with that much data and is
glad he did. Is the performance acceptable? I'd really be horrified if
I'd be forced to go for Mysql or Oracle.

Thanks for the help,

Geert Bevin
