Emergency database recovery

To recover corrupted Firebird (or InterBase) databases (with size less than 65Gb) you can use IBSurgeon FirstAID - the best recovery tool for Firebird and InterBase. FirstAID can  automatically fix the vast majority of Firebird database corruption. For database more than 65Gb in size please contact our support, most likely it will require manual recovery service.

HQbird 2017 is released!

We are glad to announce IBSurgeon HQbird 2017: new version of an advanced distribution of FirebirdSQL with native replication, optimization tools, automatic backups, and monitoring. HQbird 2017 includes the following new features:

  • GUI to configure native replication for Firebird 2.5 and Firebird 3.0. HQbird supports asynchronous and synchronous replication. HQbird replication works without triggers, it does not require backup/restore. The replication adds very little overhead (2-4%), it runs under high load with 500+ writing connections. Integrated installer for Windows now includes Firebird engine (versions 2.5 and 3.0, 32 and 64 bits).
  • Cloud backup. HQbird 2017 implements the ability to send backups or replication segments (compressed and encrypted) to several FTP servers. HQbird at backup server decrypts and decompresses files.
  • Improved full and incremental backups, new test and production restore, and scheduled sweep procedures.
  • Improved MON$Logger with SQL response checker integrated. Now you can schedule monitoring of the specific SQL query and instruct MON$Logger to make a snapshot when performance is low.
  • ​Integration with HQbird Control Center. Control Center is 2nd-level monitoring to watch for many Firebird servers in a distributed environment.
Download HQbird Enterprise and try it now! (if you downloaded pre-release version, please download the final release and reinstall it).
Follow this instruction to setup replication with HQbird Enterprise.
