One way to scale Firebird Database is to put it on memory virtual disk or ramfs

On linux i can mount a partition in memory (Install ubuntu/debian)

sudo mkdir /mnt/ram
sudo mount -t ramfs -o size=200G ramfs /mnt/ram
mount to show you the partitions mounted

and then move your database into the ram partition

cp -rp /var/lib/firebird/2.5/data /mnt/ram

That large instance could help you with the Firebird cache settings also the extra SSD could do wonders

Inspired by the stack overflow big fat server architecture
