Subject Making backups to a firebird DB, using 3rd party tools
Author David Wessell

I maintain a Firebird DB that holds data for our inventory
application. I'm interested in implementing some 3rd party tools (Live
Vault, Iron Vault) that take snapshots of the server every 15 mins or
so, and store them offsite.

Most of these tools use a Open Transaction Manager of some form, to
make the backups of open files. Since almost always the DB is open,
and has open connections, it would fall under this banner.

I'm curious if anyone has ever had any experience, or has any thoughts
about using a tool like this to backup a Firebird DB every x minutes..
