You can use HQbird with existing Firebird databases without any change in the database structure or metadata, without backup/restore, triggers, etc. You can revert to standard Firebird at any time, without any changes or backup/restore, too.
Firebird 2.5, 3.0 and 4.0 are supported. The actual acceleration depends on CPU, disk subsystem of the server, and structure of the database. Install HQbird Enterprise in the trial mode (up to 90 days) and check what results will be on your server!
HQbird Enterprise also includes the recovery toolset to fix corrupted databases, corrupted backups and to undelete occasionally deleted records.
Also, HQbird uses Firebird configuration files, optimized for better performance.
HQbird supports all types of backups and their automation:
With HQbird, you will never lose or overlook an important backup, even if you have many databases in various locations.
HQbird permanently monitors your Firebird database and server: more than 30 parameters are monitored to ensure the availability of your business data.
HQbird (all editions) supports HQbird Control Center - the 2nd level monitoring infrastructure, which enables monitoring of hundred of Firebird servers (Control Center is available as for customers with HQbird Subscription).
In the case of a problem, you’ll get an alert before things go bad.
