Firebird News

And if anyone doesn't have a game plan in place to quit #mysql and move to #firebird or #postgresql, then they are doomed.

That would be the quote of the day
and the first sentence would be

If the #opensource community isn't running away from #oracle right now, they only have themselves to blame.


These quotes are from a real firebird customer in USA and on it's website it does mention it (providing Firebird hosting on centos and cloud servers)

Customized hosting solutions designed specifically for Firebird 1.5 SQL database hosting

And I have seen one hoster that it used Firebird for it's premium features (enterprise grade db)
I don't find the link , i think is on ibphoenix firebird hoster list (or on the news area) , but i will search it and add the link here

in the end we do care about your data not like other nosql/dbms attempts

Digg was originally built on the tried-and-true LAMP stack (Linux,
Apache, MySQL, PHP) of open-source technologies, but it was straining
under the load of Digg’s traffic. Replacing MySQL with Cassandra was
supposed to help fix that. It came with its own set of larger problems
instead.


this i saw in the field : you must add more people to keep the site on
with oodbs or tree based storages
