Subject RE: [firebird-support] Down time

Just like anything if a problem occurs with my shared array I switch
everything over to one of my backups. My backups are all replicated data
from my primary hosting company. I have yet to have any problems with my
shared array. It's a very redundant configuration. I have been doing this
for the past 5 years and my number one downtime isn't hardware related on my
end, it's my ISPs. To prepare for the event of my shared array failing, we
have done live drills where we moved our data from one location to the next.

I apologize I can't get into specifics on my network topology, but hands
down Firebird is very reliable.

Could you explain better? :-)
I understand that you are using some kind of a middleware to conect your
applications to the database server, but I don't understand what happens
if you have a problem in your shared array.
