IBExpert and Firebird Workshop

Firebird Administrator intensive training focusing on speed, security and interfaces.

In our workshop we focus on the tasks an administrator needs to perform to effectively operate a Firebird server. The aim is to achieve the optimum speed for the hardware and software used, to guarantee maximum operational reliability, and to be optimally prepared for a breakdown by means of a suitable worst-case scenario. We will also concentrate on the independent implementation of simple requirements in the areas of import, export and reporting.

The workshop will also include the presentation of our new tool IBEGbak.exe. This tool can greatly speed up the runtimes of your backups and, in particular, the restore process to a backup server.
