Firebird Data Source

Firebird is an open-source SQL relational database management system that runs on a range of
different platforms. It provides powerful language support, high performance, and great
concurrency to its users and is a community-driven project.

With Firebird, the database is kept in just one .fdb file, making it easy to back up or move it, typically
by just moving or zipping it. It also supports an embedded mode, meaning that businesses do not
need a server when they are working with local files. Previously known as the Borland InterBase
RDBMS, Firebird provides a lot of the same features as a commercial database such as triggers and
stored procedures.

Using the data that is produced by Firebird can be essential to your business. With ETL or ELT you
can pull this data through to your business’s own data storage facility, giving you the information
that you need, when you need it. And Gravity Data’s Extract, Transform, Load or Extract, Load,
Transform tool can do this for you.

ELT Your Firebird

Extract, Load, Transform (ELT) refers to the process of taking the data from a source such as Firebird
and moving it to your data storage facility such as a data warehouse where it can then be made to
be usable, meaningful information. Gravity Data’s ELT or ETL tool carries out this process, quickly
and easily, providing you with the right information at the right time.
