FIBS is a rapid, compact scheduler for Firebird and Interbase databases that utilizes "gbak.exe" to ensure secure backup and can mirror to alternate disks or computers for added backup protection.
One of the standout features of FIBS is its multi-threaded architecture. This allows for high-grade concurrency so that users can set multiple backup tasks at the same time. Every backup process (including zipping) is executed in a separate thread, which means that backup tasks cannot be disrupted by problems with other threads. This makes FIBS a great choice for anyone looking for a reliable backup scheduling solution.
FIBS is designed to run on Win32 environments and can backup local databases, databases on mapped drives, and network databases specified by UNC path. It supports all Firebird and Interbase versions, although it cannot run as a Windows Service.
One of the great things about FIBS is that it can create GZip compatible compressed backup files, which can save you a lot of disk space. It can also create compressed backups for databases that are larger than 4GB in size. FIBS doesn't need any dll or anything else for compressing.
FIBS uses gbak.exe to backup your databases safely and quickly, and it is designed to solve your daily backup needs. It uses a daily rotated schedule to ensure that your data is backed up regularly and reliably.
In addition to all of these great features, FIBS supports two basic backup file preserving styles: it can preserve a defined number of backup files, or it can preserve newer ones than a defined file age. It also produces separate logs for each task and appears only on the primary monitor (not all monitors in multi-monitor systems).
Overall, FIBS is a solid, fast, and smart software solution that is perfect for both personal and corporate backup needs. Whether you need to back up local databases or network databases specified by UNC path, FIBS has you covered.
