InterBase is an ultra-fast scalable, embeddable SQL database commercial-grade data security, disaster recovery, and change synchronization.
In this video session, Stephen Ball shows how you can create a blank new database with the IBConsole. Moreover, you can find out the different options you can potentially choose and why the default options are typically the best to use.
The first thing you need to do before using a database is creating a database file, you can do this with the IBConsole or command-line interface. Since the IBConsole interface is clear we will go with that.
InterBase has page size and records may be multiple pages long. Depending on how your tables are and it’s ideal to have a record on a page, so if you need to be over multiple pages then it may be worth having a slightly bigger page size and that can improve performance. Also if you have big indexes it may be worth having a look at the page size.
Furthermore, if you are making a database for different platforms you should consider the Character Set.
