Firebird is an open-source, SQL-based relational database management system, based on the open source edition of InterBase initially released by Borland Software Corp, previously known as Inprise Corp. Developed using C and C++, Firebird provides extensive support across major hardware and software platforms, including 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 supporting stored procedures and triggers.

Firebird adopts a multi-generational architecture, also known as multi-version concurrency control. This approach uses record versions instead of relying on read/write locks and transaction logs to ensure external concurrency and consistency. Within this system, the previous version of every modified record is preserved as long as it’s needed by at least one active transaction. Each record version is associated with the transaction that created it, and transactions are aware of other currently active transactions.
