Classic architecture binaries for Firebird SQL server. These can be used either for Classic (separate processes run by (x)inetd) or SuperClassic (one multithreaded daemon with per-connection cache and shared locking system) model. Firebird is a relational database offering many ANSI SQL standard features that runs on Linux, Windows, and a variety of Unix platforms. Firebird offers excellent concurrency, high performance, and powerful language support for stored procedures and triggers. It has been used in production systems, under a variety of names, since 1981.
