Database Management System

Firebird® is an open source SQL relational database management system. The project link is VODCA interfaces Firebird® in a client/server relationship for patient and outcome databases. Interesting features of Firebird®:

  • Runs on Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, and a variety of Unix platforms;
  • Multi-user, concurrent connectivity;
  • Small memory footprint;
  • Supported by open-source and commercial contributions; and
  • large worldwide user community - used by approximately 1 million software developers.


VODCA databases can reside on local computer or remote host.



1 VODCA database = 1 Firebird® file Thus, VODCA databases are very easy to backup, copy and share as a template!

What's the limit on the Firebird® database size? You'll probably hit the filesystem limit long before Firebird's.
