Firebird database recovery

IBSurgeon offers 2 types of recovery service: on-site and via remote desktop.

On-site recovery means that customer needs to transfer database (archived in zip/rar/7z/etc) to us and we will perform recovery in our office.

To perform remote desktop recovery our specialists connect to the computer on customer’s side and perform investigation and recovery remotely.

IBSurgeon recommends remote desktop service in the following cases:
  • for big databases;
  • for databases with sensitive information (we are also ready to sign NDA to provide legal protection);
  • for urgent recoveries. Sometimes it’s too long to transfer database file for recovery - it’s faster to connect and repair at customer's computer;
  • for recovery on production system. IBSurgeon's engineers can connect to production system and perform recovery during offline hours.
More details: Firebird database recovery.

  • Hardware and OS settings investigation
  • Firebird performance measurement, including transaction performance investigation
