I work for a Semiconductor Diagnostics in Tampa, Florida. We have been
using Firebrid since it became firebird having switched from Interbase when
Firebird went Open Source. We manufacture metrology tools used in the
computer chip manufacturing process and have over 300 installations around
the world. We keep all our data and tool related information in the
database and have yet to have a database related failure ( A database
failure would bring the tool down ). Even better we keep our log files in a
Firebird database that may at times continually write upwards of 1000
records per minute for hours at a time ( I've seen databases go from 256K to
2GB in a few days time. ) We only run this during diagnostic periods of
tool operation, but have have very good success with Firebird. Our clients
include Infineon, HP, TI, Epson, and Samsung just to name a few.

If I can provide any further information please contact me at my SDI mail
address bob5407@...
