InterBase will just run and run and run! Even with the hardest-working databases processing 10,000+ transactions a second, it would be 150+ years before you would need to back up and restore the latest InterBase database server (compared to under a month with older versions and Firebird).
Rapid Crash Recovery
InterBase was one of the first ACID-compliant databases on the market, and having this built into its core means it will get back up and running very quickly following any server crash. In fact, InterBase is so good at this, it has been deployed in tanks, helicopters, and medical equipment globally where time to recover is critical following any system reboots. And so it was famously once said when competing against Oracle, “No! You don’t need to put a DBA in a tank with InterBase.”
InterBase also offers a range of failover capabilities, covered in the Disaster Recovery section, including incremental backups, journals, point-in-time recovery, and database shadowing.
