Firebird is an open-source, SQL-based relational database management system, developed from the open source edition of InterBase initially released by Borland Software Corp, previously known as Inprise Corp. Firebird is created using C and C++, offering extensive support across major hardware and software platforms such as Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. It encompasses numerous ANSI SQL standard features, enabling concurrent OLTP and OLAP operations through its multi-generational architecture, and it supports stored procedures and triggers.
Firebird utilizes a multi-generational architecture, also known as multi-version concurrency control, utilizing record versions instead of read/write locks and transaction logs to maintain external concurrency and consistency. In this system, the previous version of every modified record is retained for as long as needed by at least one transaction. Each record version is associated with the transaction that created it, and transactions are cognizant of other ongoing active transactions.”
