"We have reviewed Oracle and some of the other big relational databases and chose FairCom for our database development needs. With c-tree Plus, we see transactional volume that is 8 to 10 times faster than what we can get with other databases. I have been using c-tree based solutions since the '80s and highly recommend it for any type of transactional data storage."
